“But why is the answer more books?”
Jack was pleading with his dad, again. It seemed every time Jack asked his dad a question, his dad would say “look it up.” Of course he did and sometimes that required researching not just one book, but two or three. Jack’s dad had books on most subjects and was an avid reader. He knew the secret of getting Jack to read more was to have him look up everything. Jack’s curiosity led him from one book to another, not realizing how much he extended his learning.
It was another trip to the used book store when Jack asked his dad where they were going. The answer was always the same, “we need more books for more answers.”
