Books I Enjoyed!
Introduction: My name is Dara Kobrin. I want to teacher elementary school age children, especially third grade.
My goal of reading 30 children’s book for the semester is to broaden my horizon of different types of children’s
literature other then books that I have read as a young student. At first I selected only books that I have heard
of, then I decided to be daring and look into all types of new books and authors. There were two quotes that
caught my eye. The first quote is from the book La Mariposa, “ Mama just bought them at the Goodwill store.” I
chose this quote because it shows that the family is not rich and this quote gives clues to the person reading it
without stating that the family isn’t wealthy. The second quote is from the book The Boy Who Could Fly Without a
Motor, “ He had no intension of stopping this wonderful, miraculous, sensational, extra-ordinary, supernatural use
of his brain cells.” I chose this specific quote because it demonstrates the awesome vocabulary throughout this
book. I love how it gives the story more meaning and excitement.
Reflection: This whole process is all new to me, I have never read a sufficient amount of children’s books and
logged about it. My favorite books were Love to Langston and La Mariposa because they were both so diverse and
different but yet exciting to read. Now that I want to be a teacher, I think this whole process is extremely
important, because my students are going to ask me questions about what they are reading. I also think it is
important to have a diverse library for my students in the classroom.
