An Elementary Reader

Looking Back at My Early Reading Experiences

from an early age
From an Early Age…

I loved to look at books at a very early age. My mom read aloud to me often.

My dad and I were the readers in our family, but my mom enjoyed reading to my brother and me.

Looking Back at Early Reading Experiences

My favorite book as a young child was called Peppermint. It was about a homeless cat who found an owner.

These are other books that I enjoyed. My mom would often let me pick out a “Little Golden Book” after grocery shopping on Saturdays.

In Primary Grades
  • I will always remember the first story I read in first grade, entitled Sun Up (a Dick & Jane type story). It went like this:
  • “The sun was up. Sandy was up. Bing was up.”
  • I was very excited to learn to read!

Reading the Marvin K. Mooney book was probably one of my first experiences in reading with expression.

I enjoyed reading my Bible and Bible stories, especially those with pictures. This is me on Christmas morning with my new Bible.

My mom joined a book club that sent us a new book each month. Some Favorites: Any Dr. Seuss characters, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, and books about animals.

A Favorite Book Series

When I was in second grade, my mom began reading to us from the Little House on the Prairie series. I couldn’t wait until we read them each night! I also began to watch the show, but I always preferred the books. During this time, I began to like books from long ago. Other books I enjoyed were Heidi and Little Women.

Intermediate Grades

In fourth grade, my teacher read us the book Beezus and Ramona. Beverly Cleary became one of my favorite authors and I read many of her other books.

Judy Blume became another favorite author as I progressed through the intermediate grades.

Ordering books through school book orders was something I enjoyed each month.

Junior High Grades

In junior high, I read and shared popular books with friends. We read Paula Danziger books and I began to enjoy mysteries. I still enjoy going back and reading older books that I read long ago.
