One of the blessings of my childhood was the utter freedom in which I was left to explore, sample, and lose myself in books. Almost as soon as I could handle a book, my parents taught me how to open and use one properly. Books have become a part of me. I would be lost without them. They are a way of life for me. I wish this same freedom for all children today!
