A boy and a girl are sitting back to back, engrossed in the books they are reading in their laps. This concept comes from an old poem, "I had a mother who read to me, the world is mine." My mother taught the joy of discovering the curious variety found in this world, often through books. She said, "You could live 10 different life-times and never do the same thing twice, this world is so full and bursting with wonders to be discovered." Through education, the whole world is open to us.
