I remember thinking, damn is that the best they can do. I would love to be on the island and run the show. Ah the enthusiasm of being young.</p>

<p>

<p>
<strong>**** and Dora, looking back it was so funny with lines like " Dora sees ****, run Dora run!<br /><br />
</strong></p>

<p>
I have never read a whole book but charlottes Web was the closes I ever got.&nbsp; These stories scare little kids.</p>

<p>
The Outsiders.</p>

<p>
my first book of many would have to be "Lord of the Flies" it shows the troubles of youth from so many perspectives, and asks the question... What would you do?</p>

<p>
Oh my, do you really expect me to remember back that far? I can't remember yesterday!</p>

<p>
What's a book?</p>

To Kill a Mockingbird

<p>
See Spot Run! loved&nbsp; it!</p>

<p>
Curious George</p>

<p>
"See spot run" I think was the name. Did I like it....of course I did....because I could read it by myself.</p>

<p>
The boxcar children...wanted to live their life</p>

<p>
First school book? Toughie. Probably in my creative writing class while I was PSEO in college. We read this British short story magazine that I ended up buying a copy of later. : )</p>
<p>
&nbsp;</p>
<p>
The first book I ever read was in late middle school when I read Monkey King by Patricia Chao.</p>

<p>
**** and Jane in kindergarden</p>

<p>
The Enchanted Horse. we all got to pick our own book from a few. I loved it so much that I never gave it back. I still have that exact copy. Its special because I love reading and it is all because I loved this book.</p>

<p>
I remember reading Go, Dogs, Go......still one of my favorite books</p>

<p>
I'm with trepii on that book. It's been so long since I last thought about it. Wow...... Old Dan and Little Ann. I was captivated by the joy, thrill,and tragedy in it's story. They made a movie of it too. I was wondering if it was a Walt Disney movie.</p>

<p>
Jonathan Livingston Seagull</p>

<p>
GREEN EGGS AND HAM !</p>

<p>
kama sutra</p>

<p>
I wanted to read from the day I entered first grade. My parents asked if I liked first grade ( the first day of) and I said " No because we didnt learn how to read." from the moment I could read I liked anything and everything I could read</p>

<p>
The single most important piece of advice I would give is this: Never let anyone dictate your actions</p>

<p>
My first real book that I actually got stuck in was Twilight Saga. GO TEAM EDWARD!!</p>

<p>
the first I can remember were these books about each of the planets.&nbsp; They weren't books we used in class, but they were in the library at school.&nbsp; I would read those (and other astronomy books) every time they made us go to the library during elementary school.</p>

<p>
Charlie and the chocolate cake mmmmmmm</p>

<p>
Lost Horizon.&nbsp; I was in the ninth grade when I read it and I liked it so much I read it in a couple in nights instead of the the the two weeks required.&nbsp; The teacher&nbsp;fussed at me but I did not care.&nbsp;&nbsp; Every few years it is one TV as a movie, fuzzy, grainy and missing a few parts, but, it I still watch it.&nbsp; I still has the same effect it did when&nbsp;I when 14 and an impressionable kid.&nbsp; It is a good read.&nbsp; I&nbsp;still have a copy.&nbsp;</p>

<p>
School book? Assuming you mean a book assigned by a teacher to read vs. a 'text book'.&nbsp; I would have to say the first one I remember was Curious George.</p>

<p>
Green Eggs and Ham.. I had people read it to me so many times I memorized it and pretended I had taught myself how to read</p>

<p>
"Black and Blue Magic".&nbsp;</p>
<p>
I read this in elementary school. It was about a boy with a secret potion that when rubbed into his back gave him wings.&nbsp; He would apply the potion at night then sneak outside and go flying.&nbsp;&nbsp; The book was called B&B Magic bc he often bumped and bruised himself in learning to fly. &nbsp;</p>
<p>
It was a cute book.</p>

<p>
&nbsp;A difficult choice A Pair of Jesus Boots.</p>

<p>
<strong>my very first pleasure reading ever was about an ostrich family.&nbsp; imagine that.</strong></p>

"today is monday" by eric carl.<br />
<br />
maybe that doesn't count since it was read TO us in our kindergarten class, but it was one of my earliest favorites. i have to be honest, i've liked just about every school book i ever read. :P

<p>
&nbsp;&nbsp; The first book I read entirely on my own. I was so proud to make it to the end with no help. It was in the first grade and and all I remember is that it was about house animals and their toys.</p>
<p>
&nbsp;&nbsp; It made me feel like a big kid being able to read it on my own. :-)</p>

<p>
"Fun With **** and Jane!"</p>

<p>
an inspector calls ... although that was in fact a scripted story ... so of mice&nbsp;and &nbsp;men...</p>

<p>

<p>
I was in Grade 4 and home sick in bed. My mum had gone to do her weekly shopping and she surprised me with a book, the title was Belinda. That was the first book I&acute;d read, apart from school books which are compulsory. And I fell in love with reading. So I have my mum to thank for that. and all the other things that a mother does.&nbsp;</p>

<p>
It was called 'Face' I think. It was a very touching book.</p>

<p>
There where no books back then, we read cave wall pictorials :)</p>

<p>
See Spot Run.&nbsp; (**** and Jane both hated it)</p>

<p>
Can't remember, but it must have been a biography or history book.</p>

<p>

<em><strong>I was given a set of "twins" books. The only one I remember well was called "The Dutch Twins" and I loved it.&nbsp; I still own that book.</strong></em></p>

I was reading at age three so by the time i was in school the books were mundane. My first book I read was Tom Sawyer by Mark Twain.</p>
