Each one of our children has different interest, so we usually find ourselves reading two different books a night. Although we only have our daughter part time, when we do have her we try to encourage her to read to us rather than us read to her considering she is old enough to read on her own. Our two-year-old is always picking up books about tractors or cars, he loves to hear us read to him. I hope to pass my love of reading to each of my children and continue to find books myself to read and
Once I finished the book I begged my mom to take me to Borders to pick another. We would spend hours in the bookstore, drinking hot chocolate and reading short stories. At this point, in school I began to do oral book reports. My explanations were always very vague and I was often told to elaborate, which was my biggest issue in writing. By Middle School, I received my first failing grade on a
I had started to prove my teacher wrong. I was doing very well in every subject, particularly in English and writing. I have always loved to read, but writing was (and is) a challenge for me. When I was impressed by a novel, or very interested in a particular topic, my teacher would assign a paper or essay to summarize what I had learned. I also had an interest in history and started reading many books and materials on early American history.
Next I run upstairs and get started on my homework because I knew I could play outside if I finished early enough. In the short poem Girl by Jamaica Kincaid, her words highlight her younger years being filled with lessons and advice on how her mother wanted her to live and act in society. My parents at a young age gave me life lessons along my journey to adult hood such as how cook , how to clean , how to catch fish, how to tie a knot so I don’t lose the fish, how to stand up for someone else, how to stand up for myself, when to stand up for myself. My parents always said “don’t start a fight but you sure should end one”. I may not be the tallest or strongest and some would say those words are what describe a “man”.
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.
During high school, I was regarded as the best English-user. English class was always fun and interesting. I was especially enthusiastic in learning and practicing my writing skills. Writing has always been a personal hobby, and I often spend my free time drafting short stories. I knew I was good at writing as I was often asked to write for the school magazine or website, but I didn’t know what makes me a good writer.
My experience as a reader isn 't as extraordinary as many, but I love to read. I had some great teachers throughout my education that taught me to enjoy reading challenge oneself and not be intimidated by it.

Beside all those school books I now read, I use to read books about life, and history I also lloved mystery books the ones that make one wonder and keep you guessing till the end.
Another factor that gave me the strength to love reading was because of my older sister. She always told me different bedtime stories, which engaged me to reading story books. She daily bought colored story books from her friend, and read the book as I look at the images per pages. I remembered that I had two favorite books. The one was entitled “Ang Pambihirang Buhok ni Raquel” and the other one was “Mr.
Hello Mr.Rase, my name’s Elena Serafimovski and I’m a writer in my junior year of high school. Writing is extremely comforting to me, I even find it therapeutic. As a young writer, I would write short stories on silly ideas like puppies or flowers because I enjoyed that. As I progressed through middle school, I picked up different styles of writing by reading books from various authors. The more styles of writing that I read, the more I wrote.
To get away for the weekend and have a good time and relax. She said, “Would you like to go with us to Carowinds Barbaree?” I said yes of course! “Make sure you take off from work.” She told me to start saving my money and we will go two weekends from now. We went June 22nd on a hot Saturday morning, around 10:00. My boyfriend Shawn came and got me from my house so we could all ride together.
Her inspiration came from the feelings of writing to an actual experience and thinking of names that are memorable to her. While she told us that reading is a pleasure activity and not for a younger audience to learn from a lesson, she immediately got my attention. The reason was because in most children 's books I have read are all based on lessons, in which it made me stay away from reading because it was so boring. As the session ended, it made me rethink the importance of writing and reading and how different approaches can to lead to

Good writing stems from a strong foundation of reading skills. I remember sitting in the library of Griswold Elementary School listening to the librarian Mrs. Church telling us how if we are good readers we are good writers. As the group of eager little children that we were, writing was something that we loved to do and participated in often, so a chance of becoming better at it just made us want to read more. In this same library, the PTO held the annual Scholastic Book Fair, this event allowed kids to browse a selection of books and develop a understanding of the personal book genre that they enjoy. As children, you love to read and are encouraged to do so by your parents, friends and teachers.
