A while ago, I interviewed my readers for a change, and my final question was, “What question have I NOT asked at BTT that you’d love me to ask?” I got some great responses and will be picking out some of the questions from time to time to ask the rest of you. Like now.
Who taught you to read?
Since , with me, it was many years ago, I can’t exactly recall. However, I would assume it was my Mother and Grandmother. My mother used to relate stories as to how she would always give me books while in my playpen, while potty training, etc. She was not an avid reader nor do I remember ever seeing her or my Dad reading a book for pleasure when I was young. I do remember, as a young child, helping my grandmother cook, and she would let me read the recipes. I do have vivid memories of always being with a book when I was in 2nd grade as my teacher, Mrs. Chervarini, encouraged reading and would give books as prizes for different tasks. Example, one month she created a collage of many sites, buildings, etc in our state. In our spare time, we could try to name each picture and the one with the most right would win. My parents used to take many day trips around the state so I was able to recognize many pictures in the collage and I won, which I received the book, PT 109 by John Kennedy.
What about you? Who taught you to read?
