"More than any other single skill, the ability to read – and read well – allows a child to succeed in school, learn about the world, function in society, and some day have good job options." (A quote from the National Children's Literacy Website.) We all know that the ability to read is life-changing. For many of us the idea of life without reading is almost unimaginable. As parents we hope our children not only become good reader but learn to enjoy reading. One of the ways to encourage reading in children is to let them own there own books. The Children's Area in the bookstore is filled with wonderful books for children of all ages. Books start at 25 cents and most are less than $2.00. If you have children or grandchildren, nieces or nephews, I would encourage you to check out the Children's Area at the bookstore. For just a little bit of money you can make a big impact on a child's life.
