“Reading aloud to children teaches vocabulary in one of the most natural ways possible. Most of the questions come from them rather than the teacher.  Words that are puzzling can be quickly explained in the context of the story.”     Frank B. May

“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
