The article presents a reprint of the 2008 Patrick Hardy Lecture delivered by Verna Wilkins, publisher of Tamarind Books, on October 29, 2008. Wilkins says that her choice of publishing picture books was influenced from her learnings that children read pictures long before they learn to read words. Moreover, she emphasizes that literature is an indicator of integration and can be a tool for promoting intellectual dialogue and social cohesion in a diverse society.
