The books will be given to children which live in low-income communities. They will be using hashtag #readHappy on Twitter to share posts and pictures about how reading akes them "happy."

"Every child on this planet deserves to experience the joy of reading," Pharrell said in a statement issued through Penguin.

Each social media post will equal a donation. His picture book "Happy" comes out next week.
