  • The Magic Tree House Book Report

    back to the books I read as a child, such as The Magic Tree House and Dear America series. I was addicted to reading as a child and that love has continued until today. I think one of the main purposes of children 's literature is to encourage children to want to continue reading throughout their lives, and by doing so, they will learn more about the world around them and learn to explore their imagination. The books I read definitely did this for me. In The Magic Tree House series, I was taken on adventures to castles, into jungles and onto the Titanic. Through Dear America, I learned about important topics in history. Thinking back to the type of books I read as a child that positively shaped my life, I would have to agree most with Beverly Cleary 's view of what children 's literature should attempt to do: to create a story to which all children can relate. The stories I read were not overly complicated like When You Reach…

  • College Admissions Essay: Do I Love My Name?

    think of my name, I mostly think of pink lemonade. To me my name feels smooth, like strawberry sorbet. None of the people who’ve given me nicknames could comprehend how my name feels to me. Maybe that’s a thing only I can gain a full perspective on, which makes it unique and personal. With this being said, Madi Decker gave me the nickname “Elbear” the beginning of sophomore year. I and my friends don’t really know how or why it happened, she just started calling me that and it caught on.…

  • Gender Roles In Beverly Cleary's Beezus And Ramona?

    focusing on the presence of gender norms Beverly Cleary tries to prove wrong, but also on those that she reinforces. As a women 's and gender studies minor, I am already hyperaware of the role gender plays in everyday life, so it is neat to see what views Cleary had on gender during a time when society was starting to make the transition to accepting a more autonomous woman. And "Beezus and Ramona" shows exactly that: a transitioning from one way women and girls were taught to behave by society…

  • Letters To Mr Henshaw Analysis

    Henshaw since he was in second grade. He kept writing to him year by year. Cleary helped me as a reader to understand how the knowledge and thoughts of children grow as they grow up. First, he was just as a little boy who wants to write to someone who he believes in and really loved. Maybe he felt motivated when writing to someone or pretended to. Then later as he grew up, he had the power to write without pretending he is writing to anyone and as he said, “‘I don’t have to pretend to write to…
