Kassidy and Hope

This is Kassidy and her faithful friend Hope. I love her dog's name, because that's what this guest post gave me--HOPE. What books got YOU hooked on reading? For me, it was the BLACK STALLION SERIES. I would lie on my white canopy bed and read them for hours on end (always with a bag of Reese's Pieces.) Thanks, Kassidy, for sharing!

I took after my Dad because I did not like to read. It was boring to me. I would rather watch TV and play with my sisters.
Then my big sister told me about The Baby-Sitters Club. I liked that the characters were teenagers, and I liked reading about the same characters in the series. Then she told me about Nancy Drew. I liked the mysteries and how they were all different.
I don’t think reading is boring any more. Right now, I’m reading Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. I like it because it’s about horses and their different lives.
I know there are some people who are like I used to be, and don’t like to read. Try reading because you might find a book that you like. You just have to find a book that interests you. Once you start reading, you can’t stop!


  1. What a great idea to have a guest post by a child! I love it! We love to hear other people's stories, and it's refreshing to have one from a child's perspective. I hope people who have children who balk at reading will have their kids read this. :)

  2. Brenda, I'm always looking for kid guest bloggers who like to talk about books! Know any kids like that? ;)

  3. Hope may be the coolest looking dog ever and Kassidy is pretty darn cute herself! When school starts up in again in August, Michele I can hook you up with some cool kids to chat with on your blog. I remember being enamored with the Bill Peet books my mom read to us like, KERMIT THE HERMIT and ELLA THE ELEPHANT. Nancy Drew and ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS hooked me for life.

    BTW - I tagged you on my blog this week. Happy summer.

  4. Oh, I just saw YES, THIS WILL BE ON THE TEST under tasty blogs. Thank you. I will go celebrate with ice cream.

  5. Leslie, I can't wait to hear from the kids in your class! I know they'll be full of great recommendations. ISLAND OF THE BLUE DOLPHINS rocked my young world, as well. I can still "play" the whole book in my head, the writing was so vivid.

    I hope you enjoyed your ice cream! I'm on a sugar free diet right now, and have to shut my eyes every time my banner pops up! Why, oh why, did I pick that pile of chewy chocolate goodness?????
