Take to heart what these famous people had to say. Then open a book and read to a child!

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” — Frederick Douglass

“There are many little ways to enlarge your world.  Love of books is the best of all.” – Jacqueline Kennedy

“There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate’s loot on Treasure Island.” – Walt Disney

“To learn to read is to light a fire” — Victor Hugo

 

Check out this article from The New York Times:  In Classic Children’s Books, a Window to Childhood in Past Centuries.

The Rocket Book by Peter Newell is mentioned in the article. This delightful 1912 edition is part of my book collection.

Remember:

“A book is a gift you can open again and again.” –  Garrison Keillor
