The Books We Read

I am convinced now more than ever that the books we read are of utmost importance and the choosing of texts for our children, and ourselves, is a task to be done with great care.  Miss Mason talks about the importance of the books we read and how the mind, as a living organism, is fed entirely on the ideas from well-chosen texts.  It is these ideas from our books that shape us and grow us into who we are.
