When you are young you can't go many places without your parents. Sure, there is the moment you climb on some shoes, unlock the door and toddle off down the drive with an apple in your hand,* but most adventures are out of reach.
Except in books.
This is where our first adventures begin. We play hide and seek with Spot.
Live in the jungle with Tarzan.
Or visit Moomin Valley.
A book can take you on an adventure anywhere you want to go. You just need to open the cover to begin.
Where will you go today when you read?
*Yes that was me. My mum tells me I was found at the end of the road by our neighbour, brought home and a deadbolt was put on the door. It did not stop my adventures, but that's another story :)
P.S. It is also Mystery Agent Contest day over on Operation Awesome.
