It is in every person’s nature to be an explorer. And to be a real explorer you need to visit unknown places with an open mind and an open heart.
Exploring doesn’t necessarily mean jumping on a plane and going to another country. Exploring can simply mean jumping into someone else’s shoes for a moment or two and finding out what the world looks like from another perspective.
Your library is a doorway to exploring.
In our library we can find so many different characters, places and times that will allow us to explore who we are and who other people can be.
Your child might be exploring what life was like over 100 years ago or perhaps what life on earth would be like if we all became zombies. Perhaps they are jumping into the shoes of a holocaust survivor or a future astronaut.
When your child brings home a book from the library ask them what it is about, find out how their perspective might be changing because of this book and what other books they could jump into to open up their world just a little bit more.
