It sounds so cliché but reading has always been an important part of my life. My earliest memories are of my parents reading goodnight stories to me and from this start I have always associated reading with love. I grew up in a small outport town in Newfoundland where there weren't a lot of kids so the characters in my books were my friends. I could read quite well by the time I started school and I remember my first day of school there were so many books, I thought I was in heaven. I think that's why supporting this school and the others that Love of Reading supports is so dear to me , I hope every child walks in to their school library and sees a world of possibilities.
