this is what I meant about books

Our children have been invited to a neighbour's birthday party this afternoon.

She'll be about 15, she's not exactly sure.

We were talking about what sort of gift to take.

Matthew, who spends a lot of time at their place with a boy of his age in their family, piped up with;
"Her family only has two books. I think I should give her, hmmm..., maybe four more books?"

That's what I meant here about access to books being a much greater factor for literacy than being read to as a baby.
