Once upon a time there was a boy who thought reading was only for school and not for fun. He did well in school but he didn’t think about reading just for fun. One of his teachers decided to have Book Club Fridays. Everyone sat in a circle and talked about the books they were reading. One Friday the boy came home, ran to his mother and gave her a big hug and said, “I love to read! You can go anywhere and be anything; all you have to do is read a book.”
The boy is a grown man who still loves to read and has passed his love of reading to his son and daughter. This blog is dedicated to the teachers who taught the boy how to read and led him to love reading.
