These days I rarely see kids read while they are waiting for their lessons.
They are always on their phone. Snapchat, instagram, games. You name it. Just not reading.
So I was very surprised when one of my teenage girl asking me if I read. "Of course" I said. " I read quite a lot. What about you?"
To my surprise, she showed me a list of her booklists and told me how much she is into books. I actually thought she is a phone addict. But how wrong was I. She actually is a very affluent reader!! No wonder she is a good speaker with good vocabs and sharp mind.
Reading is probably the best habit a kid (adult) can develops. You read the masterminds of others. You observe and absorb the vocabularies of great writers. It also calms your soul and creates an world of imagination in your mind that no one can go to.
