When I was six years old, my father and I started reading The Wizard of Oz by Frank L Baum together. Even now, I can close my eyes and remember my excitement at reading a chapter every night, and can still see the pictures in our well-worn copy of the book. Reading with my dad was not only an amazing bonding experience, it opened my eyes to new worlds and new adventures. I became a voracious reader and a lover of all books. To this day, The Wizard of Oz remains one of my all time favourite books, one I will always credit with starting me on a lifelong journey of reading adventures!
