My son came to the United States at age 13 without a word of English.  Less than five years later, he's more proficient in English than in his native language, Spanish.  Why?  Because he (fortunately and what a relief!) took to reading.  He reads everyday, including reading himself to sleep every night -- just like Mom!  And this week, he wrote an absolutely brilliant short story of the characters calculating their way through space and then moon travel -- so nifty!

This is one of the reading figurines in our library: subliminal encouragement!
