So with this information in mind , these are some of the books that have influenced my character and therefore my literature journey . My favorite memories either include an animal a friend or me upside down in my bed ( my favorite reading spot ) with a good book . Reading was always a safe place away from boredom and annoying siblings . One of the books I remember the most was a broad purple heavy book called ‘ Bible Stories for Kids’ I remember how at first I only read it because it was the only book in my little “library” that I had not read ; A story that stands out among others is the story of Jesus walking on water ; I can distinctly remember the first time I read this story , I was in an airplane on my way to Reynosa , Tamaulipas to visit my family. Since i had started reading the book a few weeks ago I couldn 't stop reading .
When I was younger, I enjoyed learning to read. Once I was able to read, I would read whole Junie B. Jones books at a time. I remember lying on my aunt's couch, reading Junie. B. Jones: Field Day Captain. Her golden retriever, Rosie, was running around with a folded sock in her mouth, like she always does when there are guests over.
For as long as I can remember, I have loved reading. Fiction, non-fiction, biographies, it does not matter to me. I remember my mom trying to teach me how to read when I was only three years old. I started off reading small Dr. Seuss books, and then with age it was on to interesting newspaper articles and entertaining novels. One of my all-time favorite books when I was a child was Junie B. Jones.
“Just save all your homework until I get back.” He told me jokingly. He left two weeks after that conversation. It was easy at first, but as weeks and more weeks went by I was in agony. I couldn’t live without my older brother. He always send notes to my mom with little notes to me which I appreciated but it was no comparison to having him there to mess with me and bring me the type of joy you can only get from your sibling.

This book was a gift to my mother when she was a girl. My mother used to read it to my oldest brother when he was young, and then to my middle brother and I before naptime. My brother and I drifted off to sleep with the tales of the Sand Witch, The Fountain of Riches, The Snooping Bug and seven other fantastic stories. Among each adventure, a hidden moral lesson was to be learned. When my children were, young I read them these wonderful tales to them, and it was as if my mom were there to share them.
Language acquisition is a fundamental stage of childhood, as is generally the focus for 6- to 12-year-old school children (Bee et al., 2018). As a child, I was encouraged by my parents to read as an independent hobby. Research suggests the importance of motivating children to prepare for independent reading in school, as it contributes to one’s reading performance in adulthood (Bee et al., 2018). My genuine passion and interest in reading influenced my literary ability from an early age, and I was reading novels by kindergarten and was often placed in gifted reading programs. Had I not been so interested in reading as a child, my literary aptitude may not be at the level where it is
They make you take naps try to get you to talk. And even make you watch a T.V. show. Everyday my mom and dad made me watch Winnie The Pooh for at least an hour so I could learn something. This was the one thing I really didn't mind that my parents did.

The words are bound to my memory forever, “Now I lay my head down to sleep, I pray the lord my soul to keep…” A small gospel tale read to me by my grandmother for my first years of life is my first recollection of loving books in my life. Though I can no longer recall the name of this gospel story that I demanded my grandmother read to me every time I spent the night at her house, I do remember how this book began my walk with Christ and my love for reading. Throughout my almost eighteen years of life I have read a lot of books ranging from nursery rhymes to great works of literature such as A Christmas Carol by Charles Dickens.
