What We Do
Achievements and Impact

Bring Me A Book™ Hong Kong is the leading advocate for family literacy in Hong Kong

Founded in 2006, Bring Me a Book Hong Kong  is a non- profit organization and an affiliate of Bring Me A Book™ Foundation, which is a 501 (c) (3) award winning literacy non-profit headquartered in Mountain View, CA, USA. It was founded by Judy Koch in 1997.

Our Vision:

We envision a Hong Kong in which every child is read to, strengthening family and community bonds, and creating a love of learning.

Our mission:

Bring Me A Book™ Hong Kong uses evidence-based research to provide:

  • Transformational trainings for parents and educators
  • The best Chinese and English children’s books
  • Quality programs to access authors and literacy experts

To enrich the lives of ALL in the Hong Kong community

Research shows:

  • Reading to children helps to prepare them for success in school and life.1
  • Reading aloud with young children can enhance parent-child relationships and prepare young minds to learn language and early literacy skills.2
  • Reading aloud to children is one of the most important things a parent can do to increase the bond between parent and child.2
  • Hong Kong children have high rates of ability in reading comprehension, but the lowest rates in the world in pleasure derived from reading.3

We provide:

 

“Reading to your child is the best investment of your time as a parent. The pleasure and benefits of a daily read aloud routine will be enjoyed by both you and your child for years after the books have been read. Everyone needs some downtime in their busy schedules. To give your child your complete and undivided attention and love through the sharing of stories is one of life’s deepest joys.”
