Here is a fantastic set of quotes on education & reading.:
"Books have the ability to inform, entertain and engage, but developing an appreciation can take a little effort."
"Teachers and librarians have an important role to play in getting kids excited about reading, but never underestimate parental influence."
"Help your child understand how stories work."
"Have fun creating stories together."
"Read with your child while he's learning to read."
"Show interest in the book your child borrows from the school library."
"Let your child see how much you enjoy reading."
