Woo-hoo! Today is National Reading Day, an effort to encourage reading among children ages pre-K to third grade.
How will you celebrate? Me, I’ll end the day like most others since I was a little girl: with a book.
I remember Amelia Bedelia and Where the Wild Things Are, and later, I often perused my grandparents’ Readers’ Digests while my cousins crowded around the television, watching the Donnie & Marie Show. Back then I read just to read — because I could, not because I was necessarily interested at age 6 in an article titled “I Woke Up After a 30-Year Coma and Fell In Love With My Husband All Over Again.”
Do you remember the books you read when you were young, those that shaped your lifelong love of reading? C’mon, share!
