Something to Think About
We can teach them to talk. We can teach them to walk, run, catch, and play ball. We can teach them to be empathetic and to be thoughtful and caring human beings. We can teach them so many of life’s lessons. We can give them skills. We can help guide their emotions.
One of the absolute best gifts we can give our children is the ability, the encouragement, the time, and the example of reading.
Not only will it be the springboard to launch them into learning so many other incredible skills, it will teach them to see other perspectives, to understand different voices, and yes, to think.
What kind of a world would it be if every child was a reader and every adult was a thinker?
Think about it!
