My grade 5 teacher had the most impact on my love of reading. She gifted me an Anne of Green Gables book that year. It began my obsession with Anne so much so that I was a character of that era for halloween that year. I continued to buy all of the books in the series and wanted to be Lucy Maud Montgomery and write my own books. I learned everything I could about Lucy and did a school project about her. I believe every child loves to read, they just have to find what they are interested in. My teacher knew I would love Anne and it led to more and more reading of chapter books from then on.
