There's a real joy in reading. Look at a child lost in a story. Feel the bond between the child and a parent reading to that child – or the child reading to the parent.
It's wonderful.

We want that sense of wonder to happen more and more. That's our reason for being. Nothing gives us greater joy than one more girl or boy inspired to read.
