Reading Changed My Life: Three True Stories is by Beth Johnson. A very short book that can be read in one sitting. The true stories of three women: one black, one Hispanic, and one white, who tell the story of how reading changed their loves. The stories are short, yet poignant. They focus on the importance of reading and hard work in being able to find success in life. A great little book to read to a class, or an individual child, or an adult in need of inspiration.
