WHY is reading so important?
Exercise for your mind, expands your imagination and broadens your vocabulary - just some of the reasons reading is such an important skill.
"Once you learn to read, you will be forever free."
"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents."
"There is more treasure in books than in all the pirate's loot on Treasure Island."
"Today a reader, tomorrow a leader."
WHERE should you read?
WHAT should you read?
Anything as long as you enjoy it!
HOW should you read?
That's completely up to you and individual choice.
It's always nice to share a story, may that be at bedtime, with an adult reading to you, or reading to yourself. Find something that captivates you and helps your imagination to grow.
Why, Who, Where, What or How you read doesn't matter - just enjoy it. It should be a pleasure.
