Picking Strawberries, Gathering Eggs, and Dancing--Or How I Learned to Write
Wardle, Francis
Exchange: The Early Childhood Leaders' Magazine Since 1978, n204 p98-100 Mar-Apr 2012
In school the author struggled to read and write. In fact, he really did not read until his teens, when he learned by reading the comics in their local paper, much to the chagrin of his two teacher-parents. For the first 12 years of his life the author grew up on a beautiful farm in the border country between England and Wales. His life was so full of adventure, color, smells, and sounds that reading did not attract him. In this article, the author describes how he learned to write and discusses several morals to his story.
