Lifelong Readers Have to Start Somewhere
July 03, 2012
How did you become interested in reading?
For me, it was in third grade. Our teacher, Mrs. Clothier, spent time everyday reading aloud to our class. She would read selections like the Little House series and the Hardy Boys series. She would read from one book for several days and then just stop. If we were enjoying the story, we would have to check the book out the next time the bookmobile came to school, or go to the library so we could finish the stories on our own.
I finished the Little House series and went on to read several different series (Nancy Drew, The Borrowers, and The Five Little Peppers) as well as many other interesting books. I often think that I might not have become a lover of books if it hadn't been for that wonderful teacher and her way of getting her students to read.
