For The Love of Reading - Get Books For Our Kids.

The girls just returned from Chapters Indigo in Moncton Canada. How I so wish all our young people in #Uganda could spend a lot of time in a book store. Heather Reisman is a Canadian powerhouse...she revamped reading for kids and their parents.  We even have a budget for books monthly.  Parents drop the kids off at Chapters and leave them there (very safe environment) and run errands. Otherwise parents are in the book store with the kids.  You have to see this place, there are couches in every section for all the readers of every age group.  There is also a Starbucks, free Wifi and I have even had business meetings at this place.  One day, Uganda will get this.  The love of reading and learning, every child deserves this. Who said reading electronic books online or Kindle would replace books? Every book the kids read for free and finish, they buy it. For the love of reading.
