The Power of 26 letters and some punctuation marks--Neil Gaiman

Listen to Neil Gaiman talk about the importance of books and reading here: http://amanpour.blogs.cnn.com/2013/10/30/imagination-under-threat/

Favorite quote: "'It tells children that they can go into these books, into these forests of words,” Gaiman said. “They can take these 26 symbols and a handful of punctuation marks and build them into stories themselves.'”

We need to ensure that books and reading aloud are part of the day for each and every child a home and at school.
