A Reader’s First Books

First impressions

Of different worlds

Pictures and words

From a stranger’s imagination

Held between your fingers

Feeling

As you turned papery pages

Slowing

down

to

sound

out

words

Or read them

Over and over again

Flipping fast

To your favourite parts

Learning them by heart

Shared experiences

Different perspectives
