STOP AND THINK – No book is really worth reading at the age of ten which is not equally—and often far more—worth reading at the age of fifty and beyond. (C. S. Lewis, 20th century British fantasy author)

Parents and grandparents often take great pleasure in reading books from their childhood to their children and grandchildren. Sometimes they even find more meaning in those readings than they did when they were younger. Lewis said elsewhere, “Someday you will be old enough to start reading fairy tales again.” Some of us have found that to be true.

Blessed is the one who reads aloud the words of this prophecy, and blessed are those who hear it and take to heart what is written in it (Revelation 1:3).
