The author writes about the importance of instilling a love of reading in people at an early age.
Reading, writing and literacy mean far more than understanding words on paper. Literacy has a lot to do with enriching and discovering more about yourself, your personal dreams, ambitions and hopes - coming to understand that "sacred place inside". Literacy also enables us to share this "sacred place" with others, either with an intimate friend or, through "stories, songs, dances and are" with the world. When you are reading or hearing a favourite book, poem or
story the writer is sharing with you something of that "sacred place within".
