My mother was a teacher for many years and loved to read. Although it was not her first language, my mom worked hard to learn English and its many rules. She used to read to me every night before going to sleep; we would read everything we could get our hands on. Even cereal boxes and comic books provided unlimited information for my brain! Mom used to bring home readers from school, and I remember decoding my first title, "It's Time to Milk". I knew what it meant, and the fire ignited! I was four years old, and my love for reading has never waned. Thanks Mom...
