When you are young you can't go many places without your parents. Sure, there is the moment you climb on some shoes, unlock the door and toddle off down the drive with an apple in your hand,* but most adventures are out of reach.
Except in books.
This is where our first adventures begin. We play hide and seek with Spot.
We can travel Around The World In Eighty Days.
Live in the jungle with Tarzan.
Or visit Moomin Valley.
As we grow up, our books grow with us. We travel, learn about the world. What we read can become a way to learn or escape.
A book can take you on an adventure anywhere you want to go. You just need to open the cover to begin.
Where will you go today when you read?
*Yes that was me. My mum tells me I was found at the end of the road by our neighbour, brought home and a deadbolt was put on the door. It did not stop my adventures, but that's another story :)
