Swordbird by Nancy Yi Fan

Engaging a child's mind in creativity and imagination can be a priceless gift. Reading and writing, the two most fundamental ways for humans to access, record and translate information are often under emphasized in young children's education. Too often parents become competitive in test scores and arranging a broad array of extra-curricular activities. Overwhelmed kids become distracted and unable to concentrate and savor the learning experience. Sometimes the best way to open a young mind and build quality family time comes simply from a book read quietly together. Once you power up the mental engines, they will seek to learn by themselves.
