Between the ages of 5 and 7, I went to 4 different schools, my father was in the military. At the last of these 4, the teacher recognized that I was behind and she worked intensely to catch me up. Since then I have loved reading.
My mom signed me up to a Dr. Seuss book club and I eagerly awaited my new book each month.
I currently am reading to very good books. The first is titled Power, "Faith and Fantasy:America in the Middle East 1776 to the Present". It reads like a great historical novel, not a dry history textbook.
The second book, which I am not as far along in, is titled "The Brain That Changes Itself: Stories of Personal Triumph from the Frontiers of Brain Science". Again, a fascinating book that looks at the neuroplasticity of the brain. It presents the most current information on the topic and discusses specific stories in which neuroplasticity is demonstrated. As someone who suffered a traumatic brain injury over a decade ago, this topic is particularly interesting to me.
