May is Get Caught Reading Month, a nation-wide campaign to remind people of all ages how much fun it is to read. It’s exciting to offer a child a beautiful book and watch it do its work, cast its spell.
“It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own. — Katherine Patterson
