What’s So Great About Books?

What’s So Great About Books?

I can’t imagine life without reading and hope I never have to. Great books open our hearts and minds and show us how to be better, whether we’re kids or adults.

Consider these ideas on books:
  • TV. If kids are entertained by two letters, imagine the fun they’ll have with twenty-six. Open your child’s imagination.
  • Open a book. ~Author Unknown
  • Books are the compasses and telescopes and sextants and charts which other men have prepared to help us navigate the dangerous seas of human life. ~Jesse Lee Bennett
  • Books can be dangerous. The best ones should be labeled “This could change your life.” ~Helen Exley
  • Books had instant replay long before televised sports. ~Bern Williams
  • You know you’ve read a good book when you turn the last page and feel a little as if you have lost a friend. ~Paul Sweeney
  • I would be most content if my children grew up to be the kind of people who think decorating consists mostly of building enough bookshelves. ~Anna Quindlen
  • The stories of childhood leave an indelible impression, and their author always has a niche in the temple of memory from which the image is never cast out to be thrown on the rubbish heap of things that are outgrown and outlived. ~Howard Pyle
  • When you reread a classic you do not see more in the book than you did before; you see more in you than was there before.  ~Clifton Fadiman
Is there a book you’d like for children to read, but it’s not out there? Then write it. 

Are you one of those people who’ve had a children’s book simmering inside you for years? Has a story slowly been taking shape as you mull over characters and plot? Take charge of your time. Write your book.
