As I look back on my life as a reader before this children’s literature class, I realize how much time I didn’t devote to reading. College has been busy so I haven’t been reading as much as I have like and I was afraid I would never get back into it and enjoy it as much as I used to. This class has proved me wrong! I have picked up many books since the beginning of this class and have enjoyed it just as much. Although I have to actually have to have an interest in the book first! I find that I really enjoy the children’s books with great illustrations. I love looking at the pictures because it really adds to the story. I also love the books that have a moral to the story. Though they may be short, they still teach children the value of different things and you leave the story feeling better in a way. Another type of book I really enjoy is the young adult books that would most likely be for middle school kids. I didn’t think I would enjoy them as much as the children’s book but the last book that I just read proved me wrong. They don’t have pictures but they go deeper into the story unlike a children’s book would. They still teach lessons but in a different way. For the last reading assignment, I read a young adult that was some what of a mystery and I loved it! I love books about friendship and would enjoy reading one of those in the near future.
