So excited for this venture to move lives and move books into the hands of readers of all ages and walks of life. Reading to my children is one of the greatest pleasures of being a parent. I've always known instinctively it was "good" for them, good for us--in the most soul-satisfying of ways. My kids are now reading to themselves but we still take the opportunity to read aloud in our household: even among the adults. It is one of life's greatest gifts: entering into other worlds and imaginations through stories. I am so excited for this team to take this project into the world--literally! (Pun intended :)
