I think that I was very successful in seeking literature to reflect our diverse society I have books on my Library Thing from all over the world. I also have books with people of many different races and genders. I have many books with male protagonists and with female protagonists. I think if anyone looked at my library they would see that I have a large selection of many different kinds of books. I gained so much from all of this reading. I really know now what to look for when choosing books for my classroom. I also gained this amazing database that I can go back to whenever I want to get ideas for books. Sometimes I selected the books with my own preference like when it came to the social studies books. Other times I just randomly pulled books off the shelves and read them. My selection process did change over the semester a little I never really paid attention to the easy books that I picked, but a few times I did catch myself going back to the same author. I had to tell myself to stay away from that all the time because I need to experience something new. My favorite books were still the Eric Carle books. They were my favorite because I just love them, I have loved them my entire life thus far and I probably always will love them. My new favorite author is definitely Kevin Henkes. He is my new favorite because I just adore the imagination in his books. Whoever thought there could be such a fantastic book about a plastic purple purse or a kitten who thinks the moon is a bowl of milk. These stories just really took me back to a place where imagination runs everything and I absolutely loved that. I enjoyed the folklore/fairy tales genre and the biography genre the most. I do not have children, but I did read all of the baseball books that I checked out to my boyfriend and he enjoyed everyone just as much as I did.
