Reading, for me, is entertainment and an escape from the real world. But it can also inform and stretch the boundaries of the life I live.
My Questions book was an odd combination of education and horror. Like a picture of a terrified little girl with her dress on fire alongside text explaining how fires and burns work, and what to do if you catch on fire. It worked, though. This picture stuck in my memory for a long, long time. When our school had the "stop, drop, and roll" campaign, I was all, "yeah, I knew that already."
