Book-ing them young
Children’s section at The British Library Aladin jumps on his magic mat and does a somersault to save his ladylove Jasmine. Spiderman comes flying from the 100th floor of the building to rescue people caught inside the building on fire. Julian and Anne along with their three partners help police nab the kidnappers to justify their tag of the Famous Five once again… Then takes place the gradual shift to a bit serious stuff. Sherlock Holmes, Agatha Christie, mythology, biographies of famous personalities…the chronological order makes sense. For the first level leads to the next, when it comes to reading in the children's section in any library.

Our hoteliers and restaurateurs definitely spend a whooping amount on the hotel décor since people first feast with their eyes.
