Why do you like reading and/or why do you think reading is important?
The magic of reading is profound, it allows you to enter the realm of imagination and break free of the constraints of everyday dullness and conformity. Fantastical realms like Narnia, Oz and Wonderland have inspired and enthralled children for generations and books have provided solace and comfort during times of uncertainty and danger. Reading also allows you, for a few precious moments, to forget all of the stresses of the outside world and it gives you the power to step into a character’s shoes and experience the emotions and events that shape that character’s life. The knowledge that you will gain from reading is important enough just in itself, but its ability to transport you to a different time and place is what makes reading truly magical.
