Journeys: Young Readers’ Letters to Authors Who Changed Their Lives. Published by Candlewick

To quote Neil Gaiman ” A book is a dream that you hold in your hand”. Never is that more apparent when seeing the way children react and respond to books. Here are letters, real, heartfelt letters written by real kids, to the authors that have made all the difference in the world to them. I defy anyone to read this book without tearing up, or realizing the remarkable power of a good book to change lives. As a children’s librarian, I see it every day in my students, and it’s nothing short of a miracle. Authors, good authors, can change the lives of anyone who opens their books. Please, for the sake of our children and our world, read this book and fight to keep your public libraries open. Those authors have the power to save all of us
