Do you remember as a kid picking out books for someone to read to you every night? Most kids get their favorite books to read from when they were little; do they so much enjoy them now? Not really, they just like them because it brings up good memories from their childhood. Everyone likes to remember their childhood.
My childhood was rough, but I made sure that every night I got a bed time story. IN order for that to happen I had to pick out a book, 10 minutes before I had to go to bed. When I was growing up this was the best book in the world to me. Each time I wanted a story read to me, I would pick this book up and ask my mother to read it to me. This book brought so much hope and wisdom to me, it made me think about everything I really liked, and things I didn’t like.
The way the book was set up was a bunch of rhymes. One day my mom told me “I think that book was just a setup every night, so you would memorize the rhymes, and annoy me with them”. I still chuckle to this day when she told me that. Life was so simple then, so full of rhymes and beautiful little lessons on every page or in every book. The way we think is nothing like that now, we have become so in depth to our feelings and emotions and living by with all the emotion that everyone around us is. We just don’t ever pay attention to our old memories; sometimes we lose sight of what is really and what our favorite things are anymore.
In the book “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr. Seuss, we learn a lesson that will help us learn something new. Like that not all foods are revolting and disgusting just because you have not tried them yet; you just have to give them a chance and understand that not everything is going to taste the same, but even if food looks gross it may taste the best. This book helped me try new things instead of rejecting everything except vegetables and fruits.
