Dick and Jane
Dick and Jane was probably the first book I read for myself and have loved reading all my life because of great teachers sharing their love of reading from a very early age. —Ellen Shullaw
I remember running all the way home from school with my Dick and Jane reader yelling,“Mama, I can read!” A thousand and one new worlds opened to me. Yup, that’s my favorite book. —Margie Robison
Short but sweet, they held my attention to the very satisfying ending. And that dog Spot—I just loved to see him run! —John Skophammer
First time I opened a book in first grade I fell in love with reading. Half a century later, I am still in love! —Belinda Kendrick Watson
