The fairy tales, new lands, adventures, etc... you can read all those interesting in the books. I remember when I was a child, my mom and my grandmother usually read books for me. They always read before I sleep or when i sad because the tales about Snow White and Seven Dwarfs, Little Mermaid, ect.... always are the dream world of any child.

From my earliest years, reading was an essential part of my life. My mother and my older brother loved to read.…

    Throughout High school and Middle school I always preferred writing to sitting down and reading a book. Elementary school was a time of exploring both reading and writing so at that point in time I did a lot of both. When I was younger I enjoyed reading for the images on the pages and also the ones that were created in my head. My mother, Lisa, and father, Mark, would take turns reading bedtime stories to my sister, Amanda, and me to expose us to new language and literature. Sometimes Amanda and I would read the stories to each other too so that we could learn to read ourselves.…

    When I was younger I can also remember my mother or father reading stories to me before bed or when I was sick. My mother would always act out the character in the book to make it more interesting, it always made me laugh, but it also kept my interested in the book. I also remember while she was reading the book to me she would ask me questions about it, like what I think was going to happen next and what she thought was going to happen next. Throughout elementary and middle school I was told to read slowly and carefully to make sure I don 't miss any words and also to make sure I 'm understanding what I am reading. In elementary school I was never a good reader, I would stumble over words and sometimes, when we were reading…

    My mother has been my literary sponsor throughout my life. I remember the times my mom would make me read books and later on have me write and summarize the book. She would also make me notecards of tough vocabulary words and have me memorize and spell each word. She helped me learn many aspects of literacy such as vocabulary, spelling, grammar and much more. As Erika J. Petersen explains in her article, Past Experiences and Future Attitudes in Literacy, “… It 's apparent that past experiences with learning literacy appeared to play a role in these people’s future attitudes toward reading and writing and that praise continues to change your attitudes throughout your entire learning experience” (Petersen 197).…
