Mahnaz Dar of the School Library Journal says that, “Author Kate DiCamillo has always gotten kids reading, whether by writing mesmerizing stories, like the Newbery-winning The Tale of Despereaux (2003) and Flora & Ulysses (2013, both Candlewick), or by advocating for the importance of literacy” (Dar). This quote shows how when children recognize authors that have written some of their favorite books, the author’s credibility increases in the child’s mind, causing them to be more encouraged to read books written by the same author. Kate DiCamillo has won numerous awards, proving what a beloved, talented author she is, such as 2014 Newbery Medal or 2014 E.B. White Read Aloud Award, and 22 more awards for Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures alone. The fact that she has won such a large amount of awards for her literature shows how much her readers enjoy her books along with what a respected author she is, which can have the power to influence kids to read Flora and Ulysses: The Illuminated Adventures.

Those friends she made eventually she lost them, but she never lost the hope she had. She lost the life she had when she was a young girl but she found the life she wanted even after all the tragedies she had to go through. Even after the war and all the hardships she had to go through to survive she still found happiness. “All But My Life” had so many great things to say about life, hope, and how to keep on going even though everything inside of you doesn’t want to. The author used great imagery trying to show us what the places she stayed looked like, with everything she had to go through at each camp and the things that happened each passing year.

Hellen Keller overcame her disabilities to become a great author and a lead example to all people with disabilities to show that nothing is impossible. Having no way to communicate or see my surroundings is impossible to imagine and is a great obstacle to overcome especially more than 100 years ago. I would imagine that my life would be completely different with two major disabilities such as Hellen Keller and would be very difficult without a great teacher like Anne Sullivan. I would feel trapped if I were to lose my ability to use language later in life and would not know what to do. I would not be able to talk, see, read or write and that leaves me with no form of communication.
Of all of her letters, 385 have survived until today and been preserved. Her letters were her first steps as a female writer. She knew that her written words would be undying and could inspire people after her spoken words had faded. She promoted her letters to be read by all, not just by the addressee, so that her words could influence as many as possible. Through her letters, St. Catherine was able to address anyone, anywhere, in a direct and intimate way, crossing geographical, class and gender boundaries.
She has continue to strive for a better place for every human, no matter race, gender, sexuality or past life. Isn’t that what moral courage is all about?

This was a hard concept for me to grasp because I had my ideas, I knew what worked, and I couldn't figure out why everyone else made things so difficult. Now since I was no longer shy, I jumped right into making my opinions obvious and heard when I could. Other people had different opinions and didn't always like mine; they also weren’t very nice about it. I wondered all the time why people weren’t as dedicated as I was about cheerleading, and I still struggle with that today. However, cheerleading is my passion and I’m not going to let other people's opinions change that.
