We love to give our children wonderful gifts. We save up for long periods of time, we work extra jobs, and we take great pains to choose gifts that will bring a smile to their precious faces. But one of the most valuable and long-lasting gifts we can offer costs absolutely nothing. The gift of a love for reading and a love of books will bring hours upon hours of pleasure and enlightenment to each of our children for a lifetime. There is no price we can place on such a gift and it is ours to give regardless of our degree of wealth.
