spacecrafts instead of listening to the story. Then one

day Tyrone’s feelings about reading changed because

Tyrone listened. When he listened his imagination

became active and he began to enjoy books. He states,

they finished the book about the pig. Tyrone even asked

his teacher if they could have story hour in the library. In

conclusion, Tyrone changed because he once did not

like to read and now he enjoys it very much.
