Importance of reading

"Reading holds out to us and to our children access to the greatest range of thought possible.  Reading offers all of us access to the world so that we come better to understand ourselves, those around us, history, culture and science.  Reading enriches our ability to express our feelings, to question.  Our own love for reading allows us to pass on to the next generation that which has been give to us: the gift of reading." -- from: For the Love of Reading by David Bouchard, p. 10 (011.62 BoF 2004)
