Literature Log 3
Recently I read pages 26 - 47 in American Dragons, by Laurence Yep, and I really like this section of reading because the story is unusual that it talks lot about parent's love.
One line from this part of the book that stands out for me is: "Our parents never discouraged us, in fact they were our biggest fans." I think this is agreeable because most of the parents love their children and they think their children are the best although they may not.
Another line that I liked was: "But when she was sitting silently in all those waiting rooms while I was being turned down for one job after another, I could almost feel her wanting to shout, "Use her. Use her. What is wrong with her?" This stood out for me because this line showed how do the parents worry about their children more than their children did. It showed the parent's or mother's love to the daughter that she was very concerned about her daughter's stuff.
This section of "American Dragons" reminds me of something that happened to me. One time I need to have competition on dancing ballet. She said that she was not care about it because it was my competition not hers. But later, I saw her sitting at the back stage. She looked more nervous than I did. Also, when I held her hand to let her give me courage. Her hand was full of sweat. It was really touched that I can felt the love from my mom.
What's probably going to happen next is that there will be a new section of story. I am looking forward to seeing it because this book makes me think of my past experiences and it makes me have sometime touched and special feelings about it.
