Booking Through Thursday – First Time
August 5, 2010 § 3 Comments
What is the first book you remember reading? What about the first that made you really love reading?
My favorite books as a kid were Dr. Seuss’s Green Eggs and Ham (and just about every other Dr. Seuss book) and Green Bear by Alan Rogers. When I say I read those books about a million and one times as a little kid, I’m not kidding. Which brings me to a semi off topic moment, one of my baby brothers LOVES Green Eggs and Ham the way I did growing up, so when I read it to him its like I’m 6 years old all over again.
As I got a little older the books that kept me reading where the Magic Tree House series. I remember all throughout elementary school I would read them over and over again. I remember wanting to go on all the adventures that Jack and Annie got to have, but only being able to read the books. There’s also a lot to learn from those books and I think my insatiable want of knowledge was probably instilled while reading them. They also helped me to develop my love of reading by keeping my crazy 9 year old self completely tied up in a story and leaving me curious for more.
