    A great post. My children enjoy library books but there really is nothing more special than owning 'special books' to read again & again... but then I'm biased!

    Small children love to imitate - anyone who has ever seen a small child desperate to play with their parent's phone will know that. And this goes for books and reading too. The more they see the grown-ups around them using and enjoying books and other reading materials, the greater value they'll place on it themselves, and the more "essential' they'll consider it - just like that phone. Phones obviously have a huge practical value, as well as being fun for children and young people. All children should be lucky enough to see that the same applies to books.
