Once a week in elementary school we would go to the school library and everyone had to check out a book.
Most children chose fiction books but i would always choose nonfiction books on animals.
My goal was to learn information on every animal and then by the end of the year
I would have so much knowledge on all the animals in the world.
But basically what happened was that
I would read a book on one animal and then just forget the information I learned as time went by so it really didn't work.
