We can help our children find the tools they need to succeed in life by providing them access to information through the “printed word.” Knowledge is power, and books are full of it. It’s important to teach your child to have a lifelong relationship with a printed book, so they can grow into adults who read easily and frequently whether for business, knowledge, or pleasure.
