23 Reasons to Read Printable Poster

Book Love by Melissa TaylorWhy do we read?

I spent some time thinking about this . . . and how we want our kids to read for so many reasons. Reasons such as . . .

to imagine
to understand
to dream
to discover
to meet
to empathize
to grow

. . . there are so many reasons, aren’t there?
