From the moment Frederick Douglass was given the tools to read “books” he was overcome with a joy and excitement for knowledge that inspired him to persevere regardless of the beliefs of others. As a slave Douglass was sent to live with his masters the Hugh family, during his time there his master’s wife began to teach him to read “books”.

“There are perhaps no days of our childhood we lived so fully as those we spent with a favorite book.” This is a famous quote said by Marcel Proust.

Children’s books contain important life lessons and teach many children the basic values they will hold for the remainder of their lives.
The first poem in the collection is Collins’ own “Introduction to Poetry,” a humorous description of how people treat poems and a useful technique to explore poems. Tania Runyan wrote How to Read a Poem based on “Introduction,” and “poetry how-to” books are useful for a teacher who wants to move beyond exposure, or for a teacher whose students have read poems and are now demanding answers regarding them. Although her list is slightly dated now, Colleen Ruggieri’s favorite books and websites are interesting and useful to other teachers. An educator should not hail these books like Bibles, but students should be taught to explore poems while reading. Runyan’s guide is a great model because she explains the techniques thoroughly, provides her

Dr. Seuss work to this day has a very important impact on American Literature. Dr. Seuss influenced the way children's authors word their books by using basic words for children to understand.

Dr. Seuss’s is a well- known and influential American writer whose books staple in homes and elementary schools today. Dr. Seuss's books had an influence on me because they always gave me a sense of imagination. Dr. Seuss's books were an easy read and constantly getting stuck in my head.

Even during the holiday season (Christmas time) Dr. Seuss’s book The Grinch who stole Christmas is constantly being read internationally in commemoration of Christmas spirit.
Dr. Seuss’s books have had some influences on me. When my mom used to read Dr. Seuss to me, I developed a love for reading. Dr. Seuss’s books have had an exceedingly positive impact on me when I was younger because they taught me to read along with the illustrations and the words that tell the story.

The last way Dr. Seuss’s books have had an impact on me another one is his use of rhyming.

Mrs. Stowe is sometimes even credited with having sparked the flame that would later become the raging conflagration of the American Civil War.
