Dear Power Lunch Mentor:
One of the best ways to spark a passion for learning in children is to captivate them with great literature in an enriching environment. That is what you have done this school year, introducing students to enchanting books and guiding them through the places and ideas and words – and sheer fun – to be found in their pages. You have thus helped arm them for the many academic challenges ahead as well as for a more fulfilling life.
