“Read a Book Day” – Sept. 6, 2011

It’s national Read a Book Day today as millions of kids head back to school. Have you read any good books lately?

There is a Chinese proverb that says, “A book is like a garden carried in the pocket.”

For there lies the wisdom. Imagine a garden full of growth, filled with beauty and fragrance. A good book carries the same yet the wisdom is found within. In the imagination behind the writer who carries it to the reader. For every good book is like a journey into the mind of the writer.

“Books let us into their souls and lay open to us the secrets of our own.” – William Hazlitt

On this national “Read a Book Day”, find something that interests you and open the pages. As children head back to school, many will open their text books for the first time. They will engage in learning new things. Their minds will open to new ideas. They will get a glimpse of their future.

They have imaginations far beyond possibilities. For even a child can ask the questions that a wise man cannot answer.

Celebrate the children in your life. Share a good book with another. Read the stories to the children. Find a comfortable chair and dive into a new book. Celebrate “Read a Book Day”.
