It's my nephew's birthday and I am presenting him a book. I want to write the following note on its front page. Kindly check whether the note is correct or not.

"As you walk along the path of life, make friends with book, then you will never be alone for they will never leave you side and you will grow up to be wise and knowledgeable."

Hi S21d

In addition to Audi's minor corrections to answer your question, I would just like to point out that it may have just been left out when typing but in your lead-in statement it should be to "present someone with something". Present him with a book.

What a great gift and wonderful sentiment. Books indeed enrich the lives of everyone who reads them!

Equality is when you see a person - not a label.
