This fall in Children's Literature I have read one hundred and twenty-two books over the course of the whole semester. The books that I read were a variety of different genres. I read 6 biographies, 9 books on disabilities, 18 non-fiction, 64 fiction, 8 folktale, 3 poetry and much more. The reason for this, was so that I could understand what each genre consists of and really begin to ask myself questions about the books that I read. I believe that I can fully understand the importance of reading and understanding pictures in books to a fully extent now because of this class. The library that we had in our classroom was very helpful and extremely organized. It made the process of finding books to read very easy and not stressful. When I first started choosing books, I would open them and look to see how long they were. Looking back, I can tell myself that this is not a good way to choose books to read. Towards the end of the semester, I was looking at books for their pictures and reading what the books were going to be about. This way of picking books out is more successful than my previous way. From reading all of these children's books and novels throughout the semester I was able to understand what really digesting a book means and what I can benefit from doing that. I also realized that the pictures in the books tell a story within themselves. It was interesting to read a picture book with no words and come up with a story of my own from the pictures on the page. My favorite books were probably the books that I read during my author study. These were my favorite books because I felt that they really told a message in them and the illustrations were excellent as well. I chose two of my author study books to read to students too. They enjoyed them as much as I did. I also really enjoyed reading books by the author David Jenkins. They were really fun and appealing to the eye. I know children would really love them. I think the genre that I enjoyed the most were the folktales and fairytales from different parts of the world. As a child, I really enjoyed Cinderella and Beauty and the Beast and those kind of disney movies. That is probably why I still continue to like fairytales and folktales at an older age. Since all of the genres were different, my selection of books was very diverse. I selected books that were of all age levels so that I could get a balanced selection of easy to harder books. There were books that had culture within them. For example, some of the folktales. I believe that I was successful in seeking literature to reflect on our diverse society. LibraryThing made this experience of reading books and writing reviews very easy. Everything was simple and easy to find. I look forward to adding more books and writing reviews. I plan on looking back on my reviews of books if I decide to use them in my future classroom.
