In this area, we can say that children are stars. They give special place for kids to have fun with some indoors educational games. They also entertain kids- talking, and playing with them.

I remember the importance of reading when I got the chance to visit this floating bookstore.

We all know that reading is one of the most important things to do in order to gain knowledge, because for all we know, knowledge is power. It is a means of communication, sharing ideas, perceive and comprehend language. However, it requires critical analysis and creativity. Its process includes continous motivation, practice and developement.

Reading chooses no age limit.

The most interesting part about my tour around the vessel was when I spotted this old man having his center of interest of one of the books inside. At his age, he still finds his way to read and be able to experience it differently.
