“Reading can enrich our lives each day. It’s important to take time to read. It benefits us and sets a good example for others. Life may only give us just a little, but reading can give us so much more. Reading is just like exercise.”

This picture and essay were submitted to the 2012 Reading Changed My Life Contest by Guillermina Macat of the United States.
