At primary school I was able to read for myself some of the books that were meant for grade ones up to grade four leaners books and also had little assistant from my teachers and mother with all the words I did not know at the time. From then I had favorite books that I could read fluently and understand. These included Tom and Jerry, Cat in the hat, the three little pigs and much, much more that I used to read on a daily basis for my family and friends. The love of reading made me a very imaginative kid and a curious one at that, every week I wanted a different career when I grow up, which was very interesting and confusing also for my mother. Throughout primary School and high school my love of reading and writing grew and so, did the number of books and also my ability to pronounce and understand English.
They put little things into their writing, such as: “to the little people” or “to the hard working mums” on the dedication pages, severely empathizing with the parents on the hardships of child raising, they used guilt trips to make the mothers feel bad for “neglecting their children,” and even telling the parents they “tested the books on their own children,” all to convince the parents to buy more of their products!

The author points out that empathizing and actually teaching the parents and children was a much better way to sell more books. However, those who used the “guilt trip” ploy (Making the parents feel guilty for neglectful parenting,) did not sell many products.

It wasn’t that I couldn’t read it was that I never wanted to, and compared to my sibling who read every day, I was a letdown. It might not have been such a dilemma to any other parent, but to my mom who’d taught and encouraged kids to read for many years, it certainly was. It wasn’t until I started first grade that I finally started to appreciate some of my mother’s hard work.

Reading gives us a chance to experience new things without having to walk out of our front doors. My mother taught me how to read at a very young age. She once told me that reading was a gift. She also said that once I learned to read that no one could ever take it away. After reading Fredrick Douglas' story I really understand what she meant by that.
1). This is when she found her true calling, writing action novels. She took a year off to do some research on action novels, to figure out how to write them, and what she liked most about them (Schawbel. sec. 5).She had some struggles in the beginning, just like most writers do, but her biggest piece of advice to young writers is to never give up, just like she does not.

In town square we went to the bakery, the tailor and the book store. The book store was my favourite because I finally found the book I have been searching for. After that we went back to my castle and had afternoon tea with my mother. It was lots of fun but then Bella had to go

Nineteen ninety-four was a significant year for me; it was the year I began volunteering at the local children's hospital. I read books to children from ages four to fourteen which brought a smile to their face and to mine. Not only did I want to make these kids feel better, but I also wanted them to see that their illness, whether short term or long term, did not define who they are or what they could become. So, I used my skills as an educator to mentor them as they continued their schoolwork while they were in the hospital. Bringing together education and healing was a life-changing experience that made me realize that nursing is my true calling.
