Post Why reading is a good habit
Reading is one of the most important habits a parent can instill in their child. Reading opens young minds to the possibilities that are out there but are not present in their everyday realm of existence. Reading can ignite, develop and stretch young and older imaginations. It can open up whole new worlds as in Science Fiction or it can take you back in time, as in History. You can travel to far off places that actually do exist. Think about it, the first step to getting somewhere is to first know that that place does exist. Reading can pique your interest in something new that maybe you never would have considered before. Reading exercises the brain and keeps your mind from stagnating. For parents, the goal is to keep your child reading and if they like to read comic books, then their brain is still being stimulated.

Okay so just in case you haven’t guessed, I love to read. Through the years I’ve read a lot of different genres. I am especially fond of fiction, especially science fiction. I have a friend who likes biographies and autobiographies. I think the most important thing is to read what you like and to do it often. There’s never a line that’s too long or a flight that’s too boring as long as I have my Kindle or a book! And that makes my brain happy!

Well said!

I've always likened reading about far away places and adventures to traveling to those far away places and living those adventures. You can experience so much of life through books that you simply could never experience in real life ... without winning the lottery.

One more reason - it teaches children how to spell!

A couple of nights ago, I caught "The Great American Read" on my local PBS station. The topic was Science Fiction, Fantasy, and Historical Fiction (see lindagenerally's post above). At the end, they showed the 100 novels that were nominated to be the No. 1 read. I was surprised at how man of them I had read over the years. (You can view the list at pbs.org/the-great-american-read/books/#/).

They just closed the voting. Tune in 10/23 for results.
