Program ini mula dilaksanakan pada tahun 2008 bertujuan membina, memupuk dan seterusnya membudayakan amalan membaca dalam kalangan murid sekolah di Malaysia. Program ini dilaksanakan pada penghujung penggal persekolahan bagi mengisi ruang dan aktiviti selepas peperiksaan di samping meneruskan momentum pembelajaran kendiri murid-murid di sekolah. Antara pencapaian tertinggi program ini ialah penerimaan Anugerah The Most Number Of Children Reading Storybooks in Schools in a Day di dalam entri Malaysian Book Of Record (MBOR) 2010. Bagi menyokong dan memastikan kejayaan program ini, Scholastic Malaysia akan menyumbang 50 buah buku bahasa Inggeris terbitan Scholastic kepada setiap sekolah yang mengambil bahagian. Selain dari meningkatkan koleksi bahan bacaan Pusat Sumber Sekolah, sumbangan ini juga menjadi pemangkin kepada pelaksanaan Memperkukuh Bahasa Inggeris (MBI) dan diharapkan dapat memberi impak positif kepada peningkatan tahap penguasaan bahasa Inggeris murid-murid.
