When a child is read to they learn they are worth the investment of time and energy by an older person. It can also bond them to a flesh and blood human being rather than a technological gadget. We all need to be loved. Spending time to be with a child can be invaluable for both involved.
Let children read whatever they want and then talk about it with them. If parents and kids can talk together, we won’t have as much censorship because we won’t have as much fear.
Children are the protagonist to their own learning.
A child cannot be taught by anyone who despises him, and a child cannot afford to be fooled.
There is no such thing as a child who hates to read; there are only children who have not found the right book.
