Reading can be one of your most rewarding activities this summer.
Good books can open up whole new worlds of adventure and learning for your family.
And great books can introduce you to some of the great heroes of history.
People like George Washington, Sir Isaac Newton, and Abigail Adams can become your friends.
Some families have regular family reading time. Each person can have their own book, or you can select a book to read together.

Nurture your minds with great thoughts, to believe in the heroic makes heroes. ~ Benjamin Disraeli
"Place the lives of children in their formative years, despite the convictions of their parents, under the intimate control of experts appointed by the state, force them then to attend schools where the higher aspirations of humanity are crushed out, and where the mind is filled with the materialism of the day, and it is difficult to see how even the remnants of liberty can subsist.” ~ Machen
