READING IS A VERY VERY VERY
That’s why we have libraries for people like him in the UK.
It’s the LAW. GREAT!
But for school children like her …
The LAW does not require LIBRARIES in schools.
Well, DOUBLE duh!
NOW MORE THAN EVER Children need to read.
But There’s so much to do. What’s the point of reading?
Because in the pages of a book you can be ANYBODY.
Because the words that build the story will become YOURS, to build your LIFE.
READ not for happy endings but for new beginnings. You’re just beginning yourself, and you could use a MAP.
Because one of these days you’re going to get out of this town, and go everywhere and meet everybody and you want to be READY.
READ, and you’re never going to run out of material.
EVERY journey begins in the LIBRARY and you’d better start packing.
