Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about early reading…
Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? Was it from a particular person, or person(s)? Do you remember any books that you read, or were read to you, as a young child? (question courtesy of Diane)
- I'm not sure when or how I developed a love for reading. I always wonder if it was when my parents use to buy me books all the times when I was kid. Or maybe when teachers read books to their student during "Reading Times" break. Or maybe my school had those Book Festival Fair, where student go to library and buy books. Whatever or whenever it was...I am thankful. It just seem I've been reading all of my life.
My parent never read books to me, because at the times they didn't know much English. The only people that ever read to me, when I was a young kid, was my teachers. I do recall them reading to their students, while everyone sit on the carpet floor and listen. I love it when we have those times because usually those are the quiet time when we can listen and learn about some great stories and authors. And also let kids play with my long hair *grin* *chuckle*. I had my teachers from kindergartens through 2nd grade, reading to their students. Until I had my 3rd grade teacher who gave us "Reading times", which is when every students get to chose a book from the shelves and sit on their favorite spot to read their books. We even had our librarian reading books for the class too.
I don't remember what books were read to us/me but I do remember my favorite first childhood book. Lot came from The Little Golden Books, such as: "The Poky Little Puppy", "Goodnight, Little Bear", and all the Disney books. Than I discover "Harold and the Purple Crayon" and love it. Growing up from teenagers to now, I read teenager's books from Sweet Valley High, The Babysitter Club..etc. Than there is "Little House on Prairie" and "Anne of the Green Gable".
And now that I'm adult, I continue to read and have the love for reading :)
What about you? When did you developed a love for reading?
