Quote of the Week

"You become a reader because you saw and heard someone you admired enjoying the experience, someone led you to the world of books even before you could read, let you taste the magic of stories, took you to the library, and allowed you to stay up later at night to read in bed."
--Jim Trelease


  1. I love this quote. It reminds me that our children are watching us, observing how much and how often we read and will hopefully want to do the same. Lovely.

  2. I started reading because my old man wouldn't let me out of the house.

  3. Great quote! I love Jim Trelease's The Readaloud Handbook.

  4. LOVE Jim Trelease. My favorite quote of his: "What we teach children to love and desire will always outlast what we teach them to do."

  5. Obviously, I love this quote. It's great to feel I did something right.
