Reading is a doorway to adventure. It is full of endless possibilities, where fantasy and true to life stories stir up within you a myriad of emotions, thoughts and imagination. Children who begin to read at an early age will have within his hands a precious gift. Books, magazines, anything that I could get my hands on have been my faithful companion through all these years. I take one with me wherever I go... the airport, the doctor's or dentist's appointments, waiting for the kids to finish school, in my bedroom, in the name it! I would want parents all over the world to foster in a child the love for reading. If books is not their cup of tea, why not try comic books? They may just be the spark they need to start their way for books to come to life.
