My reading is going good so far with this book. I really like how it is set up and how the profiles are written. I enjoy the book even though it is my second time reading it. I am able to find different things in the profiles that i didn't notice before. The strengths of the book i think are that it can really get you into the profile of the people and that it has really good pictures of the people because they portray who the person is. One weakness i picked out about the book is that some profiles are very very short and i feel like i don't get a good sense of who the person really is in the profile.
The profile that I really enjoyed and could relate to was Donald Bean. One of the important themes that I picked out of the profile is that you should never be afraid to express your imagination. This is a great theme to have because in the world today people are so afraid to be judged by others that they don't act like themselves. I think it is very important to do that in the word because no one person is the same and we all need to express our styles and beliefs.
The photo of this profile really works to show how he felt about the park. He was very proud of it even though he didn't get a lot of business. You can tell from the picture that he enjoyed being out there at night when he was bored and had nothing else to do.
I can relate greatly to this profile because he had said he liked to go out and be in his park all alone and just look at what he had created and made. I love to go out to the deer pen and watch them as they go about their day knowing that I am the reason they are there. I love the feeling of being able to say that i helped raise the two fawns that were bottle fed. I know how he felt when we was out watching the park and really enjoying and having great pride in what he had made.
A question that i had thought about this profile was how many people actually came to the park? I was very interested in how many people knew about the park and actually went to it. I think it would've been a great place to go and see. I also wanted to know how long he fought to keep the park running without any customers coming to the park to see it all.
