Here's the question of the week: Do you remember the first book you bought for yourself? Or the first book you checked out of the library? What was it and why did you choose it?
I would imagine my mom let me choose books from the public library when I was small, but he first book I remember checking out from the school library was "One Fish, Two Fish" by Dr Seuss, When I started second grade and was still reading Dr Seuss, my friend Becky told me she was embarrassed to be seen with me while I was carrying a baby book (Becky was in third grade). She marched me over to a stack of chapter books and told me to pick one. I chose Laura Ingalls Wilder's Little House in the Big Woods. I've been hooked on reading ever since.
