 50 Essays

April 7, 2010

This morning during my breakfast, I was browsing through ‘Understanding Movies, 11e’ by Louis Giannetti, on Page 359, I saw a movie picture of ‘To Kill a Mockingbird’, starring Gregory Peck and Mary Badham. I was thinking to watch this movie.  Then, I remembered I saw this book on my son’s bookshelf.  So I went to pick it up for me to read. 

I thought my son might write about this book in his 50-essay project 6 years ago.  It’s by the pillow of my DH.  I checked if he wrote an essay after reading ‘To Kill a Mocking Bird’.  Hi didn’t.

In Jan. when I chatted with my friend about kids, I remembered my son wrote 50 essays to practice his writing, because he didn’t write much.  I drafted a ‘contract’ between him and me: If he wrote 50 essays in 50 days by the end of 2003, he would be rewarded 1500 RMB.  We both signed, and he started writing in both Chinese and English.

Among the 50 essays, most of them are in Chinese, none of them is about books.  In the dozen English essays, he wrote about movies (Start Wars only ;-) and books. All together, he wrote essays after reading following books:

-          The Great Brain

-          Dragons

-          Walk Two Moons

-          Star Wars – Bacta War

-          Lassie Come-home

-          Calvin and Hobbes (many volumes)

-          Artemis Fowl

-          The Chosen

After my chat with my friends, I decided to read the books that my son wrote in his 50-essay project 6 years ago.  So, since mid-Jan I started reading Lassie Come-home and finished last week (the end of March).  I picked up ‘Artemis Fowl’ from his bookshelf and placed it by my bed, and thought I will read it soon.

I read my son’s comments about ‘Lassie Come-home’.  I found his comments are interesting: “Even though this book has a good story, and a happy ending, which judges this book as a good book, I think it has a huge flaw.  In this book, there were a lot of people who cared for and helped Lassie during her journey from Scotland to her own home, but even though they helped Lassie a lot, they all seemed to have bad luck because of Lassie, which brings them unhappiness, but nothing is perfect, so I think it is perfectly fine to this book to have flaws.”

In a way, my son is my teacher in literature.  He is now much more advanced.
