“When we read together— when a grandfather reads to a granddaughter, when a teacher reads to a classroom, when a parent reads to a child, when a sister reads to a brother, when everyone in a town reads the same book silently, together— we are taken out of our aloneness. The story opens doors for us; and we, in turn, open the doors of our hearts to one another.
When we read together, we welcome one another in.”---Kate DiCamillo
