From “A Generation of True Writers” by Lili Wilkinson:
Every time Nadia reads or writes or watches or hears a story, it deepens her understanding of the way narrative works. And this understanding of story, of the mechanics of story, makes her love stories even more. It’s like breathing in. And when she writes a story, or a blog post, or draws a comic, or tells someone a vivid anecdote about that thing her little brother did with the cat and the jar of peanut butter, then she’s breathing out. Everyone who loves stories does this.

Yes, yes we do.
Reblogged this on Live Life To The Fullest.
Teenagers who read become adults who understand not only how narrative works, but how people and the world works. They are educated, and that his how they will save the world.
This is a post about truth and we must take every opportunity to promote the fact that teenagers who read mostly go on to be responsible, loving adults.
