Reading is so very important for your education and for your life. I try to stress the importance of finding a genre of reading that particularly interests YOU. Do this by asking yourself, "What really interests me?" Is it cars, or sports, or mysteries, or animals? Once you find a book that captures your attention, it won't be such a chore for you. Believe me, I was the same way in school until I found Nancy Drew Mysteries. They became something I looked forward to reading and all of you children in my classes know that I still enjoy mysteries and horror novels to this day! So I ask that you always have a book that YOU'RE interested in your backpack at all times. It doesn't have to be science related, just something you enjoy!
