This impacted me because I loved it when my parents would read to me and I related to the book as I never had many friends. I eventually made friends just like the pug in the book did. This book gave me hope and encouraged me to love reading.
The first literary experience I can remember is my parents reading me the book Unlovable by Dan Yaccarino.
Experience 1: Unlovable
When I was in First grade we had certain books that we had read that were on the level with where we were at in our reading and my favorite book was called Biscuit. I really enjoyed the stories with the cute little dog and will always remember it.
This book has impacted me by helping me want to read. My father said I always did well with reading and I believe that that is because I enjoyed the books I was reading. The biscuit book made me not only want a dog but it also made me want to read.
This is one of the pictures that she showed us and it was my favorite to write about.
My Sixth grade english teacher made me begin to like literature. I enjoyed reading in her class but what made the most impact was the warm ups where she put up a picture and we had to write a story about it.
I loved the opportunity to be creative and it showed me that writing could be fun. This experience helped me learn to really love literature.
My seventh grade english teacher pushed me to not like literature. She would be over critical with my writing which made me not love it anymore. The most traumatizing experience was when we were reading tangerine I made a little mistake and for the whole rest of the year she treated me like I was stupid so then I stopped loving to read as well.
I dont hate the book itself but it is just linked to a bad memory. I get a terrible feeling whenever I see this book and after my experience with it I didn't want to read anything.
In my eighth grade english class we were required to do book groups and all the books had something to do with the holocaust and I picked the book called Number the Stars.
This book brought me from hating literature to loving it again. It may have been one book but if it wasn't for this book I would have not given the next one a chance.
Sophomore year of high school
Sophomore year of high school I had a history teacher that was very encouraging. She suggested a book she really liked called Unbroken. She said it was a good story that took place during WWII i decided to give it a try since I liked history and the book was amazing.
After I read it I had a great conversation with her and through that book I had felt empowered . A book had never made me feel like that before and I will always remember it.
In my senior year english class I did not enjoy any of the books/stories we read I didn't have any friends and the teacher didn't make any kind of impact on me. The worst one we had to read was called brave new world.
I thought the book was a little confusing and it never pulled me in like other books I have read so I felt very discouraged and it became hard for me to love literature.
I read this book sometime in high school and when I read it I felt like I was in a whole new world. I loved this book very much.
this book impacted me as at the time I didn't have any friends and it was a way to escape real life.
The Fault in Our Stars
The Fault in Our Stars was a book that my sister and I decided to read and we both really enjoyed the book. We even went to a special premier for the movie because we were so excited.
This book really made an impact on me as my sister and I really bonded discussing the book and going to the movie with her was an exciting experience. The book it self was very captivating and left a very positive memory.
In middle school when I wasn't interested in reading any books recreationally I happened to come across this book. My school had the author come to the school and it was really neat because I got to meet her and she inspired me.
I had read the book and thought it was pretty good and the author made me feel like I could accomplish anything. This experience showed me literature in a good light .
