When I was asked what book I was reading, I would shock people because I would say three book titles instead of one and that was shocking due to my young age.
I believe I was first introduced to books when I was a toddler when my parents would read me bedtime stories.
To a non-reading baby, the book fascinated me because it had numerous words and colorful pictures on paper, and it would make my parents start to talk and soothe me to sleep.
Going to school is mandatory and, most times, free, so not receiving some form of an education is rare.
Reading and writing are used daily and is fundamental in life because of how often they are used throughout the world to relay messages but can be difficult skills to master.
When my parents saw my interest in reading, they started bringing me to the library so I could obtain more books.
I read about three books every night, and would wake up with my head right on the page where I left off.Once I mastered the art of holding a pencil, my father wrote my name down on a piece of paper and told me that it was how my name looks when written.He then went on to hold my and with the pencil in my hand and help me write my name.My love for books help me when in school, we had to read books in class.Because I started reading at an early level, I developed a vocabulary that exceeded others in the classroom and was also appreciative of being able to read in school.When I started to write, the first thing I learned was how to hold a pencil.Although it seems like a mediocre task, it was exceedingly tough for my little hands to get the hang of it.If I struggled, I would sound out the words, and if I still could not get the word, I would ask my parents what the word was, what it meant, and repeats the word until I remember how to pronounce it.This method helped me practice my reading and it also gave me an opportunity to learn new words, meanings and expand my vocabulary.I would listen to the man on the tape while I followed along closely with the books.Soon, I began to grab magazines and books that were around the house and read it to my parents.
