"The simplest way to make sure that we raise literate children is to teach
them to read, and to show them that reading is a pleasurable activity. And
that means, at its simplest, finding books that they enjoy, giving them
access to those books, and letting them read them." -- Gaiman, Neil. "Neil
Gaiman: Why Our Future Depends on Libraries, Reading and Daydreaming." The
Guardian. Guardian News and Media, 15 Oct. 2013.
