A book is more than just an assembly of pages. A story is more than just a collection of words. Reading is the perfect portal for any kid to start their imagination engine and drive it anywhere they can dream of. To help youth foster a love of reading is the greatest gift we can give each and every child. There are so many obstacles preventing our kids from expanding their imagination and to encourage reading is to help make the “impossible” possible. With each story they read, they have the opportunity to learn and take their inspiration from dreaming to reality. Louisa May Alcott said it best in Little Women; "I am not afraid of storms, for I am learning how to sail my ship."
