[MUSIC: The Vamp, “Cave”] [BEGIN VIDEO CLIP] You have a book that has all the books in it.
It has all of the stories and all the words.
But it has a problem: It’s a little difficult to read.
So, how do you read it?
You have to figure out what to do with it.
[END VIDEO CLip] [MUSEUM ENTRY] [BRIAN RICHARDSON: We have a lot of kids who read for fun.
They like to read about people, they like to talk about things.
But a lot read because they’re curious and they want to learn about things, and they think it’s going to make them smarter.
So I think that’s one of the main reasons that they’re interested in learning.
But that’s not all.
I think it can be really important.
We do a lot with these kids that they really don’t have.
So they get a sense of connection and they learn that there’s a connection to people, that there are similarities, and that it’s not just about you.
You can do something that you don’t normally do, and the kids like it.
And they like doing it.
So it’s important to really try to figure that out and see how it works for you.
[BRAINY VOICE: You know, the reason we read is because we’re curious, right?]
[SOUNDBITE OF CHEERING] We want to hear what you think about this article.
