Where has this semester gone?
What a ride.
The last official book that I read for class, in addition to our Treasures Series, was the sequel to Sarah, Plain and Tall.
Skylark, by Patricia MacLachlan, somehow was a disappointment.
I don’t think it was the story so much as the fact that it was written for a much younger audience than I am. I found myself knowing what was going to happen all along the story, and it seemed as though it was moving quite slow.
I think in reality it solidifies the fact that in order to be a good match, a book needs to be age and interest appropriate for the reader. If that reader is an old lady, or an elementary student, the writing style needs to be appropriate.
If a book is written in such a way that it can’t be followed by a young student, it won’t be a good experience for them. On the other side, if a book is too simple for an older elementary student, it can be worse because it is boring.
Learning the age appropriate books and having ideas for a variety of interests can make or break a good reading experience for anyone of any age.
And with that, I bid you adieu.
