    Books are essential in giving children the opportunity to place themselves in others’ shoes (try different perspectives and develop empathy) and explore fantasies. Further, studies confirm the economic importance of literacy (1). Depriving children of the socio-emotional and economic benefits of reading, we leave a people – just like us – underprepared to succeed in the world.


    Bearing this in mind, one of my professional goals is to tackle the growing issue of illiteracy or low-literacy.
