    • what an appropriate relationship entails
    • discovering personal values and how to maintain them
    • acclamation of a personal cultural identity, and an understanding and acceptance of other cultures
    • awareness of safety and security
    • John Green pointed out that, “Great books help you understand, and they help you feel understood.”
  • It develops concentration, focus, and discipline.
  • Reading allows children to appreciate new experiences in a positive light.
  • Basic speech skills and academic success can be attributed to reading.
    • From infant to age five, reading for 20 minutes a day begins to build speech skills for the rest of life.
