Adventure’s Tickets

Far away I fly
Behold fun new adventures
Books are my tickets

______________________________________________

The American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) “strongly recommends reading to children every day, starting after they are first born,” because “reading stimulates the development of the brain, language and a closer emotional relationship with a child.”

Children love the sound of their parent’s voice … start reading to them as an infant. The freedom of knowing how to read and enjoying reading is immeasurable to a child’s life.

    books as tickets, so true, gateways to worlds
    have you ever looked into bookcrossing? I just recently discovered it, I like the idea of “wild releasing books in public”

  4. Far away you fly and you don’t even have to pay for gas! I know people who complain about buying books, but if you multiply the hours of “entertainment” it is WAY cheaper than the price of a movie ticket. Nice poem.

    I need to read more books! I do read to my son all the time, but it has been so long since I have cuddled up in a corner with a cup of tea and a book. Thank you for this lovely reminder!

    Wonderful! This is my daughter’s ticket to adventure, for sure. She has exhausted the library. πŸ™‚ I remember those days and long to read for pleasure once again.

    Lovely.
