VIDEO: Storytime Campaign Reaches 2 Million Children Across Asia

September 5, 2012

In the lead-up to International Literacy Day on September 8, The Asia Foundation’s Books for Asia program launched Storytime in Asia, a month-long campaign that celebrates the transformative power of children’s books by providing critically needed reading material to some of the world’s poorest students. The campaign brings together four world-class children’s book publishers – Scholastic; Penguin Young Readers Group; Little, Brown Books for Young Readers; and ABRAMS. Watch a brand new video that features a sampling of the schools that have received books so far.
