Every now and then we declare a D.E.A.R Day, drop everything and read. Not that long ago I read the book, The Phantom Tollbooth by Norton Juster, a queer story full of allegories. It was on the kid's reading list so the plan was for them to read it, after reading it I thought it would be better for them to listen to it on audiobook.
“The most important reason for going from one place to another is to see
what's in between, and they took great pleasure in doing just that.”
and...“You may not see it now but whatever we learn has a purpose
and whatever we do affects everything and everyone else..... for whenever
you learn something new, the whole world becomes that much richer.”
