I have often thought of hanging a board with this message on the door of a classroom. The usual scene in any classroom may have children reading often especially when the art of reading is newly acquired and the excitement of having mastered this skill shows on their faces. It is interesting to look at their intense expressions. Sometimes they read aloud, muttering under their breath, or glance at an attractive picture with their probing eyes. One wonders—are they trying to find in the text what they are looking at in the picture, or are they simply trying to reinforce what they have read with the help of the picture? I do not have a clue.
