As it is rightly said by J.K Rowling “I do believe something very magical can happen when you read a good book.” Same thing happened with me, as I saw the colourful ppt presented by my class teacher. It touched my heart to read at least one page a day, which will enable me to learn new words and develop my creative imagination.

Story by Lionel Rodrigues III D
There was a young girl by the name Sumiti and was pampered by her parents.
Sumiti was a bright student and she was a very polite and helpful person.
Sumiti had one negative point in her that if she likes something then she would do anything to get it.
One day Sumiti had stolen her friend’s pen and later in the night after staring at the pen for hours, she realized that the pen was no longer beautiful for her and so she decided to return it back to her friend.
Since the teacher had blamed some other student for robbing the pen, she decided to accept her mistake and tell the truth in front of the whole class. She also apologized to her friend and promised that she will not repeat this type of mistake again.

I learnt that books can be a very good companion to us. We must read books every day or at least for few minutes in a day. Book reading boosts our imagination and creativity. It expands our vocabulary. It helps us build our self-confidence and we become more independent. Reading has several good effects on our mind, body and soul. It helps to develop our analytical thinking. It increases our knowledge and also helps us to know the world around us. It leads to future academic success and improves our grammar. It improves our writing skills. Reading is great fun and reduces stress, it makes our mind busy and we become creative. It is a great way to spend time. We become more curious to learn different things and gradually a good habit of reading is formed in us.
