100 Things To Make You Happy
When I was a child I used to read just about anything I could get my hands on. When I first began to read I wasn’t all that excited and didn’t do as well as other children my age. I struggled with reading at grade level until I met my 3rd grade reading teacher who completely changed my life when she taught me the trick to reading. It was like she had handed me the key to an entirely new world and if it was in my schools library, I read it. Although I loved fiction above all else I wasn’t adverse to reading non-fiction so, when I found the section in my library that housed the National Geographic magazines I flocked to it and spent hours reading about the different animals in each edition.
Now that I’m all grown-up and have children of my own, there’s a special set of books by National Geographic that I purchase for my own children.
