腹有诗书气自华，最是书香能致远。孩子们，当你长大了，也许你会逐渐淡忘你曾经走过的路，看过的风景，但是他们会变成你人生旅途中的一部分；也许你会逐渐淡忘你曾经看过的书，写过的文章，但它们会变成你的灵魂。愿阅读能陪伴你，指引你，帮助你，让你成为最好的自己！Books are the best friends of everyone. When you grow up, you might forget the road you passed, but the books will be the part of your life journey. You might forget the names of the books or the articles, but they will be in your soul. We hope that reading will acccompany you on your life journey, guide you and let you be the best of yourselves.
