Opinion: Reading Is Everything
By Sophie and Isla from the Press Gang
What do you do when you get home from school? Watch TV? Play games? I know what I do, read!
Research shows that reading is important. Whether you’re at school or work, alone or with friends, reading gives that extra bit of knowledge for completing a task. Scientists say that reading helps build confidence, while others say that it can teach you all sorts of extraordinary things.
Imagine a wild jungle where you’re swinging from vine to vine. The song of birds fills your ears, and you can feel every breeze as if it’s a hurricane. Ok… fine, i’m on my sofa reading, but it feels so real! I’m really having fun! Books can transport you anywhere, and it’s always your choice. That’s what makes them so beautifully fun! I know countless times where I’ve smiled, laughed even cried over books! Especially the good ones! Books are wonderful artworks, waiting to be revealed.
