I was homeschooled from 1st grade up, but for Kindergarten, I did go to public school. It wasn’t a good experience. Not at all, but there are two good things that I remember about Kindergarten: my music teacher who was so nice and caring, and the school library.
I couldn’t read very well when I was a kid. I really had trouble learning to read, but I still liked books and although I came to not like Kindergarten because of how I was treated, I did like their library.
It wasn’t as big as my local library, but still, they had a nice selection. I think we were allowed to check one book out a week and I always did. I don’t remember all the books I checked out, except for one, but I really only remember the cover.
It was a book I checked out numerous times. I loved it. I don’t remember the title or the author, but I wish I did because I’d love to read it now that I’m older.
I don’t remember if it was a picture book, or a chapter book, but the cover had a black cat on the front. The cat took up a good part of the cover, but you could see in the picture it was outside, near a stone wall.
I don’t even remember anything that happened in the book, but I do remember loving it and checking it out of my school’s library many times. It is one of the few good memories I have of public school, and my first memory of going to a library.
Do you remember the first time you want to a library? Did you have any books you checked out over and over again?
