From their first words and small books to preschool books, to reading chapter books and learning many new things; its a unique experience to be apart of. But as i mentioned, reading is something you share with your family all throughout your life, from telling your parents and siblings about some cool books you read, to buying family members a good book you have read, because you want to share it with them, to even reading to a family member on their last days on earth. Reading creates a bond, and its a bond where people can come together.
