Stories are the carrier of a culture and its values. The stories our children hear shape the future of our culture and can create a better tomorrow. A great book transports a child into another world, allows them to walk in another's shoes, and gives the direct experience of compassion, imagination, and magic. Join our speaker to learn more about the art of selecting books for young people that engage imagination, transmit values, and unlock the magic of reading. We nourish the hearts and minds of children by offering them something more than junk food for the mind. Whether you are a parent, grandparent, or teacher, you can make a difference in kid's lives just by the books you offer them.
