A Hero to Me

If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in. ~ Rachel Carson

Don't handicap your children by making their lives easy.  ~ Robert A. Heinlein

I have a passion for teaching kids to become readers, to become comfortable with a book, not daunted. Books shouldn't be daunting, they should be funny, exciting and wonderful; and learning to be a reader gives a terrific advantage.  ~ Roald Dahl

Come away, O human child!
To the waters and the wild
With a faery, hand in hand,
For the world's more full of weeping than you can understand.  ~ W. B. Yeats

Anyone who does anything to help a child in his life is a hero to me.  ~ Fred Rogers
