Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about early reading…
Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? Was it from a particular person, or person(s)? Do you remember any books that you read, or were read to you, as a young child? (question courtesy of Diane)
Nobody but my grandma actually read yet somehow she alone made me into a reader. I’ve been able to read ever since I can remember but the family says I learned when I was 3. I guess I got tired of trying to find someone who would read to me! Another family story is that I would walk up to anyone (before I learned how) and everyone and ask them to read to me lol.
There aren’t any particular books I remember more than others (I know I read every Dr. Seuss at an early age) but I know I started chapter books fairly early. Either first or second grade I believe. I remember I loved those Babysitters Club books for awhile! Oh, and I read a bunch of classics like The Wind in the Willows, Call of the Wild, Where the Red Fern Grows, The Secret Garden, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Black Beauty, etc.
