"Books are sometimes windows, offering views of worlds that may be real or imagined, familiar or strange. These windows are also sliding glass doors, and readers have only to walk through in imagination to become part of whatever world has been created or recreated by the author. When lighting conditions are just right, however, a window can also be a mirror...Children need windows and mirrors. They need mirrors in which they see themselves and windows through which they see the world."

-Dr. Rudine Sims Bishop
