Fly into Books

“Once you learn to read, you will be forever free.” – Frederick Douglass

“Frederick Douglass taught that literacy is the path from slavery to freedom. There are many kinds of slavery and many kinds of freedom, but reading is still the path.” – Carl Sagan

“There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.” – Frank Serafini, Arizona literacy professor

It is not enough to simply teach children to read; we have to give them something worth reading. Something that will stretch their imaginations—something that will help them make sense of their own lives and encourage them to reach out toward people whose lives are quite different from their own. – Katherine Patterson

“All the secrets of the world are contained in books. Read at your own risk.” – Lemony Snicket
