These past five weeks have flown by for me! It doesn’t even feel as if classes have been going on for a week let alone almost two months. I’ve learned in this class that I read chapter books faster than I do short ten page picture books. My opinion on reading hasn’t changed at all, I still enjoy every second and plan to keep that perspective of reading.
I tend to go for books that involve animals. I am a total animal and the plots that revolve around animals, I usually read much faster than I do stories only about humans. As far as books I don’t like, I haven’t really stayed away on purpose from any particular books but I’m not a huge fan of the longish non-fiction books especially if they are about history. I will read them it just takes me a while to get into them and actually remember them.
If an author wrote a book just for me it would have to be a short chapter book, maybe 3-4 chapters, about a girl and her best friend who happens to be a dog. I’ve read a couple books about children and their dogs and they just really hit me, probably because it reminds me of my childhood. I love the books with Golden Sower awards, simply because I love Nebraska and learning about Nebraska and everything in it. In elementary school our librarian use to hold these books back for me so I could read them. I’ve enjoyed books for early elementary the most but I read chapter books for later elementary more often. I’d like to become a Kindergarten teacher so I try to read as many short picture books I can though!
I’m excited to see what the rest of the semester has in store and where all my reading adventures will take me!
