Musing Mondays

Musing Mondays (BIG)Today’s MUSING MONDAYS post is about early reading…

Do you remember how you developed a love for reading? Was it from a particular person, or person(s)? Do you remember any books that you read, or were read to you, as a young child? (question courtesy of Diane)

PLEASE LEAVE A COMMENT with either the link to your own Musing Mondays post, or share your opinion in a comment here (if you don’t have a blog). Thanks

I actually don't remember how I developed a love for reading. I learned to read at young age, and I think once I started I just never stopped. My favorite books when I was little were Madeline by Ludwig Bemelmans (this little red-haired girl loved books about other little red-haired girls), and Ferdinand, about a bull who didn't want to fight, and anything Frog and Toad. I still have all of them, and the best is when I can read them to a kid.

I've started collecting my favorite childhood books also. The Secret Garden, Daphne's Book, and others. It's great to be able to go back and read your favorites again.

I started reading when I was three. The only books I remember make a chain - from Dr. Seuss to Nancy Drew to Agatha Christie and thence to everything.

That asthma had confined me indoor helped cultivate my passion for reading.

I learned to read in nursing school, sent home with these pictorial books with easy characters, both in English and Chinese.

How did you get The Children's Book? I am very happy for you. I look forward to hearing about it since I am going to read two or three others before I get to mine.
