The importance of the book for the formation of young people

The books are such a powerful medium for teaching us lessons we need to learn. The young People need to learn how to effectively communicate with others, as well as make good decisions regarding their lives; they also need to recognize that each individual is striving for happiness regardless of what they do. That way, they can work towards becoming an ethical society bearing witness to the beautiful complexity of humanity!

Everyone needs to learn how to effectively communicate and many also need to learn how to make moral decisions. Most books are a form of classic literature that teach us lessons we need to make decisions based on. They’re also a gateway to our rich literary traditions.
