1. Why does adventure have to have so much of a violent influence?

Why couldn't they show kitties or gardening or some such instead of swords and cowboys and such?

3. Because we call that something else. I believe the word is boring.

4. Books can open your mind, they can make

you dream, hope, laugh and cry. For a child, they can open a whole new world. They can broaden their intellect. Teach them the difference between what is right and what is wrong.

I see the first as a girl, wishing to be an Astronaut, or a deep sea diver/ explorer, like Jacques Cousteau. The second, a cowboy, that will ride and tame wild stallions a horse whisperer maybe! The third girl, as a Crusader that will seek truth. The last boy, a magician, one that will seek magical ways to make the world a better place!

You see, this is how I imagine them.

Imagination is a beautiful thing. They help shape us. Books teach us that. We can be anything that we want to be.

Our President sure did.

Thank you, Playinghardball. What an excellent graphic!

5. Books nurture the imagination where movies and TV stifle it.
