"Pick-A-Book Initiative is based on the premise that every child has the right to be
educated and reading is a key foundation of all forms of education."

Every child deserves to have access to books not only for the purpose of promoting literacy but also to fuel their imaginations. Every child deserves to have his/her imagination run as wild as it can. And if that wild imagination leads to a bestselling novel, so be it! At Pick-A-Book, we believe that learning does not have to be a chore but can be an enjoyable activity given the right setting.
