'A house without a library has no soul'

The Early Childhood Commission used the occasion of the basic school book donation ceremony in Kingston on Tuesday to remind parents to do all they can to sculpt their children's reading and writing proficiencies.

The push came from Norda Seymour-Hall, director for sector support at the commission.

“It is said that in every house there should be a library, because a house without a library has no soul. It means that knowledge must be available to all, wherever you live and whoever you are. That is why it is important for us to ensure that our children are literate and they're exposed to literacy,” she said.
