I loved the book To Dance With The White Dog, by Terry Kay. When I first started reading, I was afraid this was going to be another depressing book about old people and I wasn't looking forward to reading it. I loved the book To Dance With The White Dog, by Terry Kay. When I first started reading, I was afraid this was going to be another depressing book about old people and I wasn't looking forward to reading it. However, I was soon taken in by the sweet, humorous Sam Peek and couldn't put down the book. I was moved by the strong love he had for his beloved wife Cora and even more so by his strength to carry on after her death. I think it was wonderful how Sam's family came together, even in the days after Cora's death, to …show more content…
How's he doing? Is he bearing up? What should we do? What?" (pg.24) Even though the children's presence sometimes annoyed Sam, he knew his loving wife Cora was responsible for their caring ways and he took comfort in that. I can really relate to their worrying and overreacting as I too have worried about my own Dad during some tough times. Sam was very lucky to have family that cared so much and lived so close. Many elderly people do not have family close by, family that cares or family period. Even though Sam feels he can fend for himself and doesn't need his family's help, he really does need them. This is evident the time he collapsed from the pain in his hip and also when he got lost on his way to his reunion. Of course, anyone can get lost, however, Sam due to his fragile condition was unable to leave his truck to get help. If it was freezing or nobody came along to help him he very likely would have died that night. It really made me think when Sam collapsed from the pain in his hip. He was in his chair when he woke up and realized he had slept through his television shows and the TV had signed off for the night. He was in a lot of pain and unable to stand up and get his medicine and when he finally was able to stand he collapsed. I can't imagine being in so much pain that I

My favorite childhood book was called, Green Eggs and Ham by Dr. Seuss. Green Eggs and Ham is about how Sam wants his friend to try green eggs and ham, and after much convincing, he tries them and likes them (“WikiSummaries”, 2016). The theme of this book is about how you shouldn’t make up your mind about something without trying it. This book is about imagination and the genre of the story is comedy. I remember reading this book for the first time and I really enjoyed the book because it was funny and it was fun to read. I also learned a lot from this book because the theme is about how you shouldn’t make up your mind about something without trying it. This means you shouldn’t jump into not trying something fast without seeing if you
The book I choose for my summer reading was, Blink Once by Cylin Busby. I choose this book because I read the first page and it kept my attention and I knew I needed to read the rest of the book. I did and it turned out to be a wonderful book with a nice twist.
A book I clearly remember is the book I read in 6th grade. I saved up my lunch money to buy it from the book fair. There was a lot of book I could not choose but my teacher helped me picked one. The book was torn on the edges. It had an off-white cover with faded writing. I remember it smelling like my pumpkin spice candle I had in my room. I also remember the book being small and easy to carry. I loved the size of it because I could take it anywhere to read. There were times where I would stay in the classroom instead of going out to play with my classmates. I still have the book but now its dusty and covered in highlighter and writing.
The book I read was ‘Three Little Words.’ It is written by Ashley Rhodes-Courter. This book was published in 2008. It was published in New York, New York. The book was published by Atheneum Books for Young Readers Company. It has a total of 336 pages. Three Little Words is organized in chapters. It has a total of 13 chapters.
My book Across the Wide and Lonesome Prairie, was writing by Kristina Gregory. I choose this book, because I thought it would be cool to read about a girl traveling the Oregon Trail back in 1847.
Ever since I can remember, my beautiful mother, Anne, would read to me. She would set me in her lap in our big green rocking chair and read Winnie the Pooh, and Dr. Seuss but my all time favorite was Dr. Seuss's "Green Eggs & Ham". No matter where we were or who we were with, she would read that book to me. She read it so many times I'm sure she could recite it word for word. After a few hundred times of her reading it to me, I had all 62 pages memorized. I could even tell when she skipped a page, which I don't blame her, its a long book. At the time, I had no idea simply reading this book would affect my literacy. But by 3, I had 50 words memorized just from the book. As I grew, so did my love for books. I often read in my preschool with
The book that i have picked up and read is “A View From Above” written by the late and great Wilt Chamberlain who was one of the best players to ever play in the NBA. What made me become interested in the book was that I knew who Wilt Chamberlain was being a big basketball fan I was interested by what he had to say and the cover was pretty cool with him being taller than the skyscrapers.
(TITLE) While I reading the book (TITLE) we had a love relationship. This book looked mighty fine from the start, those nice colors and pictures on the cover I mean she could get anyone she ever wanted. What got me into reading this book was she had basketball written all over her.
The books I read through the semester where: Treasure Island by Robert Louis Stevenson, The Amazing Maurice and His Educated Rodents by Terry Prachet, and The Journeyer by Gary Jennings.
Ever since I was a little girl I really never liked to read any types of books, but the one book that I absolutely loved was The Very Hungry Caterpillar by Eric Carle. This book is about a little caterpillar that was very hungry. The story starts off with a little egg on a leaf that had popped and out came a very hungry caterpillar. On Monday he started by eating one apple, and every day of the week he would eat another type of food until he finally was full one day. After he satisfied his hunger he had built himself a cocoon, and after more than two weeks he turned into a beautiful butterfly. This book is just an excellent children's book for the fact that it teaches three main concepts; counting , the days of
Hey, I just finished the book called Dork Diaries, Tales from a NOT-SO-Happy Heartbreaker By Rachel Renee Russell. My 5th grade teacher recommended it to me because she thought I should read books that have a little bit of everything that I like in a book, I agreed.
