Do you get emotionally involved with the characters in a book? Do the authors write so well and use such descriptive language within that book that you are pulled into the story hook, line, and sinker? Come on, admit it!
I was in The Shack and felt the loss of that kidnapped little girl.
I was out in the Wild hiking along that Pacific Crest Trail.
I was sitting on that park bench with that grandparent thinking And Every Morning the Way Home Gets Longer and Longer.
Reading can be exhausting!
A patron came into the library wanting to Inner Library Loan a book for her fifth grade daughter. She stated that she was pleasantly surprised and excited at the quality of books available for students. This also gave this young mom, an avid reader herself, a chance to discuss tween topics in the book with her daughter. What better way to connect with a child or any age group than through a book?
