Amy Tan’s Third Grade Essay


I love school because the many things I learn
seem to turn on a light in the little room in my mind.
I can see a lot of things I have never seen before.
I can read many interesting books by myself now.
I love to read.
My father takes me to the library every two weeks,
and I check five or six books each time.
These books seem to open many windows in my little room.
I can see many wonderful things outside.
