I do agree with your inspiring thought of giving book to child compulsory in school. Yes it will definitely be an effective tool for changing the thought process of a child from early age. In present society where today many of the children are attracted to Internet and moblile. Making and introducing the book by gifting the book will surely have an impact for long.As well said quote by Ernest " There is no friend as loyal as Book". As gifting book should be part of Library will be difficult but as school program I thinks it can be possible. Great thought for making school Libraries more vibrant and active.
