Think Ahead Thursdays

from an article by Sara Johnson, a reading specialist from Phillips Middle School, in The Chapel Hill News. She talks about encouraging the love of reading and quotes a favorite passage from Donalyn Miller’s THE BOOK WHISPERER:

“Reading changes your life. …Reading unlocks worlds unknown. … Reading helps you escape the confines of school and pursue your own education. Through characters — the saints and sinners, real or imagined — reading shows you how to be a better human being…”

Next step:  Explore, discover, learn and expand your world through books. It works no matter your circumstances.
