I read all the time as a child. I'd say that my love of books stemmed from my grandpa, because he would read to me every time I went to my grandparents' house. I remember loving listening to him. I didn't have a particular reason why, he was just a good storyteller. When I think about it now his voice reminds me of the readers in audio books. I began to love reading so much, I was determined to read on my own. I would get frustrated when I came across a word I didn't know, but I'm proud to say that I never gave up on it. I even reached the point where I'd ask my teachers if I could read books to the class. Seriously, I remember practicing reading this one book for about a week so that I could read it to my classmates. I had several favorite books, but one of my favorite was called Which One Would You Choose? It was just this cute little book where you would follow these two kids along as they made decisions throughout the day, such as what clothes they wanted to wear or what toy they wanted to play with. The author would tell what the two children had chosen, and then ask you which of the four options you would choose. Of course, my personal choice made no impact on the story, but I still really liked it. I guess I liked it for the same reason that kids like Dora the Explorer. You feel like your opinion is important, so I loved it.
