The World Book Traveler

Let Ann Morgan’s story encourage you as you begin reading rich, interesting books for class.  There are great stories out there, capturing the richness of the world.  What will you discover today?

 

“Books have an extraordinary power to take you out of yourself and into someone else’s  mindset so that, for a little while at least, you look at the world through different eyes.  That can be an uncomfortable experience particularly if your reading a book from a culture that might have quite different values to your own.  But it can also be really enlightening.  Wrestling with unfamiliar ideas can help clarify your own thinking.  And it can also show up blind spots in the way you might’ve been looking at the world.”
