  2. There is no substitute for books in the life of a child..... I firmly believe in this and that is the reason I am worried as I see fewer and fewer children reading (the monster - The cell phone has taken over)

    1. I totally agree. I see my nephews and nieces reading to their children and that gives me hope but I also see how dangerous the influence from outside is. Let's hope the next generation will still love books.
