Reading Makes You Smart!

Recently, an adult came in to the children’s department and selected a number of juvenile non-fiction titles. Before she left, I asked her if she had found everything she needed. She replied that she had found what she was looking for and added, “I like to read about a lot of subjects, and I prefer to read the children’s books because they are short and to the point.” My reply? “Why do you think I work in the children’s department!” Adult titles are worth reading if you want in-depth coverage of a topic, but a good way to get an overview is to read a juvenile book. Hey, I recently learned that dragonflies have the largest eyes of any insect. Very cool! And I learned it from a children’s book.
