Everyone knows that today literacy is a huge issue – and anything any of us can do to help promote literacy with kids today is a major plus.
VIZ Media, as you know – has all the books kids love to read – ‘manga’ is at the top of their wish lists – so it makes perfect sense to help promote the love of reading using manga.
