We all have reasons to love reading.
Reading opens your mind. Reading Builds Bridges. Reading is a Shared Journey.
In honor of Scholastic's 100th Anniversary, we asked our authors and illustrators to answer the question: What's a reason you love reading? The response is a dazzling collection that gets to the heart of why books matter so much. Whether they are remembering a book that meant the world to them or conjuring the magical way that books took them to worlds far beyond their own, these authors show us with exuberance, insight, and humor how the joys of reading are often inseparable from the joys of life itself.
