As a journalist (although I prefer the term "wordsmith"), I have always loved reading, writing and editing work of every description. Personally, I love the way every author creatively puts together words in different ways.
Since becoming a mum, I've devoured hundreds of children's books reading with my son. It always amazes me how unique each book is, even when the books discuss similar topics. Every book has something great to offer to readers. A love of books is something every child should be encouraged to develop, especially as books will not only educate but will open the door to the never-ending possibilities of the world of imagination.
