All science, all history, and all literature are for the scholar. To he successful in either, depends largely upon reading, the basic tool of learning. Then, if so great a colossus as learning has for its foundation reading, much consideration should be given to it from early childhood until the adolescent period when an interest and love for good literature should be developed. Reading when stripped of its mechanical defects, lends case and skill In exploiting books, magazines and newspapers. The boy or girl, who understands easily the subject matter read, carries the key to the world's library and finds living a more delightful experience. It is imperative, therefore, that the children in Faulkner Colored School as well as other schools form the habit of resorting to books. This habit will not be formed unless they acquire a love for reading.
