America’s Editor, age 3

With apologies to librarians

Let children read to you.

Let children read in private.

Let children tear the pages of a book in their eagerness to read the story.

Let children drag a book around behind them by a center page as if it were a stuffed animal.

Let children paw the pages and rest their entire body weight on the spine.

Let children feel as if the book is an extension of themselves.
