Literacy is Like Love

Imagine a child without love. I think we all understand that children need love to grow. How do we define love? We can only define it by describing its characteristics or by explaining what it feels like without it. This is similar to the definition of literacy. There is no agreed upon definition of literacy and not just in the English language. There is more of a chance of defining illiteracy and how disadvantaged it is to be illiterate but the words simply do not exist for literacy. Literacy is like love; we know it is there when we have it but we can not define it. Children need love and literacy.
