The Kids Read project marks its first community event in China in Changshengyuan Primary School, Changping district, Beijing on October 21.

The project that encourages reading for pleasure kicked off in September in the capital, marking the first time that Kids Read has been rolled out in China.

The project aims to promote a love of reading in primary students, with the long-term goal of improving academic performance, language and critical thinking.
