Here are a few quotes on the importance of reading—

"Children are made readers on the laps of their parents." — Emilie Buchwald (author and publisher)

"I used to walk to school with my nose buried in a book." — Coolio (musician, rapper, chef, actor, and record producer)

"You may have tangible wealth untold. Caskets of jewels and coffers of gold. Richer than I you can never be — I had a mother who read to me." — Strickland Gillilan (American poet and humorist)

“The single most important thing a parent can do to help a child learn to read is to transmit a love of reading.” –Phyllis Hunter, National Fellow of the Institute of Learning
