Reading Is My Positive Substance

by Emma (Mililani), age 11

My substance is reading. I like reading because it takes me into another world of imagination. Everyday, I like to read a book, if not more, and almost everything I know comes from reading (and school). When I read, I go on a pretend adventure, and that helps me to calm down and pass the time. Reading is something I like to do for fun, and that’s something that can always get me out of bed in the morning.
