Dear Books,

We have traveled to far away places, to worlds not of this own, to right around the corner. Adventures large and small are the invitation of your pages. You enchant me with words and with knowledge. Because of you, I have learned to step outside of myself, to explore possibilities, to believe in magic. You were and are still the common experience and expression of my children's growing up years. As adults now, they look back and recollect the friends they had, the journeys taken, the expansive belief that good conquers evil, and that love always wins. Thank you.
