the 500th child

Insert photo of four year old kid running at camera. No. Photo of him and those three.

That's what Imagination Library looks like.
It is a kid excited about balloons.
And his love of reading may actually be some type of memory like that.

That boy at forty may look back and say, Oh yeah I became a writer and yes, I remember when my joy of reading started. My reading first included balloons. It was a party getting books and a little computer and I think that


then I remember.

a book would come each month in my or mamaw's mailbox.

and we'd read.

It was like we had a party when that book came.
The party was called, "Let's sit down and read our new book. And remember if you read you get a balloon."

That kid loves him some balloons.

We mimic each other. It's how we learn.
That's at least one reason people say,"Read to your kid."
