My ten-year old had something to say when I asked this question out loud: "It's amazing to be able to take books out at school each day, especially when we go to school five days a week. That's five books, really, if you like to read. It's also great if a teacher reads to you and you get inspired and want to read some more to then be able to go and chose your own book on a topic that is awesome to you. Reading books makes you feel like you can just turn the cover over and step right out of this world and into another one. Every day more worlds to explore. Right here. At school. Exciting, right?!"
