It’s crazy what you can learn from reading. You get so many perspectives and world views and events. I finished a book just last night called Thr3e in which the theme was about the nature of man. I finished Lord of the Flies about a week ago, and its main theme was to point out the animalistic qualities of man. The list goes one: Animal Farm– A symbol of the slow descent of Russia into a totalitarian government. Odyssey – Shows man’s recklessness and taught me what a double standard is. The Kite Runner – shows how hate can ruin lives. Hamlet – hate can ruin lives. Romeo and Juliet-There’s a lot in this one. Fate vs. choice, love vs hate, etc, etc.

Even in kid stories there are deep messages everywhere. Cinderella – Teaches gratitude in the midst of darkness. Beauty and theBeast – Teachers to look at inner beauty and not to be consumed with outward beauty. I’m telling all of you that reading is excellent for everyone!
