My favorite author as a kid was always Roald Dahl. The route to my third grade classroom passed through the library and along the shelves that held covers with playful and whimsical illustrations. I knew those book spines by heart, checking them out on loan as much as physically possible.
One title I read over and over again, was James and the Giant Peach. This is where you’ll find the beloved quote “A little magic can take you a long way…”. This quote speaks volumes (pun intended) about the magic of a good book. This is why I choose to share the joy of reading with my children and really anyone who will listen. A good book can transport you to a new time, place or season, and I’m hopeful that by bringing the joy of reading into my home (and yours), we can keep that magic alive.
