"As parents, the most important thing we can do is read to our children early and often. Reading is the path to success in school and life.
When children learn to love books, they learn to love learning." -- Laura Bush
"To parents, we can’t tell our kids to do well in school and then fail to support them when they get home. You can’t just contract out parenting. For our kids to excel, we have to accept our responsibility to help them learn. That means putting away the Xbox and putting our kids to bed at a reasonable hour. It means attending those parent-teacher conferences and reading to our children and helping them with their homework." --President Barack Obama
