I am very excited that Mrs. Rhone's fabulous fourth grade students are coming into the library today to learn a little more about non-fiction books about other people's lives. Our library has hundreds and hundreds of biographies of everyone from world leaders to pop stars, scientists to football stars, civil rights leaders to fiction writers and everything inbetween.
Memoirs and biographies are the type of books I often seek out first. I find it very interesting to learn about the lives and families of other people. Most of the time I choose memoirs and love to learn more about ordinary people that have had extraordinary experiences in some kind of way.
How about you? What will be your motivation to choose and read an account of another person's life? Are you interested in learning more about someone you know a little about? Do you want to learn about someone you've never heard of before? Let me know what you're interested in!
