I believe reading is important because it opens so many doors for a person and allows one to pursue any walk of life that interests them. Nearly every activity in life involves some form of reading skill. Reading builds one's vocabulary, being able to articulate one's self and can vastly enhance one's ability for learning. I think good reading skills well help Dillon throughout his life by allowing him to delve into furthering his education, enhancing his vocabulary, articulation and communication skills and most importantly allowing him to continue learning with endless limitations. Reading infinately expands one's mind, knowledge and possibilities.
