Readers will be leaders….

I found myself sharing this with my 6 year old boy last night. In a rather typical child like way – he asked: why will readers be leaders? The true answer to this question is obviously not all readers become leaders and nor do they want to. What I shared with my young boy was connected with ‘making the best of ourselves.’ When we read we are potentially deepening and widening who we are and perhaps increasing our potential. This may ultimately cause us to rise to the top. What we read is of ultimate importance and perhaps some reflection / chat about its content is also so valuable – book clubs really assist in this second point.
In today’s frenzy of social media – we must keep up the fight to encourage readers, whether they will be leaders or not.
