|As you can see, my bookshelf is crying out for help!!|
I began to wonder if these days’ kids don’t read enough. If I ever have kids (and for those who know me, this is a very large IF) they will be read to at a young age and they will also begin to learn to read at a young age. I am thankful to authors like JK Rowling for inventing Harry Potter because it got kids interested in reading again, the lines around bookstores when each was released was a testament to that fact and I hope that now that series is done, another author can write something as interesting and fun and get kids into the bookstores or libraries.
There is a magic in books, in reading and I hope that it never gets lost. Witches, I know, will always covet the written word; will always have enviable and large book collections because of the thirst for knowledge, the need to learn and to know. I do hope that children continue to want to read and parents encourage and develop that in their children.
