Sewell, Anna(1941)
Black Beauty
Young Adult

When I was growing up reading was important. We read for entertainment and knowledge. We didn't have television. We didn't have video games. We didn't have the Internet. Books such as The Call of the Wild, Treasure Island and The Last of the Mohicans introduced us to worlds we could only imagine. But my favorite book was Black Beauty by Anna Sewell. Today, I continue to read every day. I read newspapers, legislation, periodicals and journals. I read novels about history and sometimes I find time to read fiction. But mostly, as I did when I was a child, I read to learn. Due to the ease in which children can obtain material to read today, it has never been more important to do so. Information is power. The more you read, the more you know and the more successful you will become. Take advantage of the resources available to you. Because for every hour you waste watching television, someone else is taking that time to read and learn.
