'It is the unexpected moments that make you sit back and think, or just smile, that can make your day. Yesterday I opened a box of books for review from Scholastic and for the first time noticed the text on the inside of the flaps. It read 'When you open my world with books everything becomes possible.' It reminded me of the famous quote from Dr Seuss in I can Read with my Eyes Shut : 'the more that you read, the more things you will know. The more things you will know. The more that you learn, the more places you'll go'. I had to go to a list of quotes from Seuss ( and there are many) to check the exact wording and also found another quote from him : 'So the writer who breeds more words than he needs, is making a chore for the reader who reads.''
