New Reader Books from National Geographic Kids
One of my greatest accomplishments in my childhood was learning to read. To an outsider, learning to read might not be that big of a deal and it’s regarded as a natural progression of childhood but for me learning to read didn’t come easily. To me, reading was a mountain that I just couldn’t climb and it hindered my grades until about the 3rd grade. While the other kids were excelling in their reading, I was placed in a special class to help me get ahead and on the same level as my classmates. It was upon entering these classes that the lightbulb went on for me and I learned to read. With the help of my teacher I was soon reading circles around my classmates and the days of struggling were just a hazy memory. My teacher at the time was amazing and she made reading fun, so, I continued to progress and went on to read ahead of grade level.
