This was passed on to me by Paul F. Olson, and I wanted to pass it on to you. This Saturday, December 4th is the very first Take Your Child To A Bookstore Day. What a wonderful opportunity to share the joy of reading with a child. The doors that open in the lives of those who are turned onto reading early in life are many. Here are just a few.
1. Reading is an active mental process
2. Improves your vocabulary
3. Improves concentration and focus
4. Builds self-esteem
5. Improves your discipline
