“Fewchildren learn to love books by themselves. Someone has to lure them into the wonderfulworld of the written word: someone has to show them the way.”
Kids who read are smarter, better, faster, stronger. Okay, theymight not necessarily be all of those things but they are really cool and well-read. And that counts for a lot! Research shows that children who read books for just 20 minutes a day perform better in school.
