LET’S MEET OTHERS!

Good morning guys,

Now you already know that I am a great fan of all of you reading books so that you can learn so much more.  Remember that in the pages of a book you can be anyone you want to be.  You can be an astronaut, a princess, a king, a nurse or doctor. Why you can even be a deep sea diver or an animal trainer!

There’s another great advantage to reading books.  You get to meet other kids and people from around the world.  I wonder what a child about 9 years old living in South Africa or Japan does first thing in the morning when it’s time to get ready for school. Are their schools like our schools?  Do they eat fun snacks and go to the movies like some of us here do?  Does a teenager in other lands have graduation ceremonies like our graduating teens do? How do they dress and why do they dress the way that they do?  I’m sure that kids from other places around the world ask the same questions about us.

Hi there. Meet me in the pages of a book.

You know how to get your answers?  Sure you do! Read a book from the library about other cultures. Cultures, that an interesting word. What does it mean?  Well, I looked it up in a book called the dictionary. A dictionary has thousands of words in it with their different meanings.  

Cultures in short means: “the customs, social institutions and achievements of a particular nation.”

So, when you pick up a book about people in Haiti or Egypt, you read about what they do and why they do as they do.   It’s great to read a book guys! Let’s continue to enjoy our Summer with trips, fun activities, picnics, swimming, and more. But please remember there’s more fun in the pages of a book than most anywhere else.  Check out about other kids around the world before the Summer ends.  You’ll love it.

See ya,

Jenny
