Reading is important to me, because books and text allow the reader to go on any adventure he or she chooses. Books make us feel every emotion there is. They make us laugh. They make us cry. They make us scared. They make us joyful! Finding a good book and a cosy place to read, make a good day better. Watching a child learn to read and experience the joy of books is an even better experience. Opening up a whole new world for him or her. A temporary escape or infinite new knowledge - books are for everyone and everyone should have access to the joy of reading.
