Margaret Loved Reading


Margaret loved reading from the beginning of her schooling. She would complete and turn in her assignment before it was due in order to get to read one of the books that Miss Morse kept at the back of the classroom. She remembers her mom reading to her and one story involving death from the book Hiawatha that made her want to run away and escape as her mother was reading.
