Abby, as I often call my sister, welcomes me home with open arms. After spending the entire day in school taking advanced placement classes, followed by community service, and some sort of meeting for a school organization, I feel drained of energy. But I know when I come home I am unable to rest because I have a profusion of homework. Yet, I need a break to keep my body healthy and avoid exhaustion from too much stress. That’s why Abby’s smile is so important to me.

- THE LITTLE SISTER: BEATRICE D’ESTE (1475-1497) FYS: Are They Amazons.

- Ever since I was a little girl, about the age of seven, reading was never one of my favorite things. It was painful to sit there as my mom forced me to sound out the words as I struggled through each sentence. Most of the books that taught me to read were the collections of golden books, such as “Scuffy” and “The Pokey Little Puppy.” They were never my favorites, but I read them because at the time, I was forced to read. I vividly remember my mom tucking me and my sister in bed every night, to then head back downstairs to what was known as her side of the couch.... [tags: Mother, Parent, Little Golden Books, Family]

- A Family Portrait: How the Picture Keeps Changing Growing up I believed that the three bears in the tale of Goldilocks were a family because they lived under the same roof and ate at the same table. I also believed that Barbie and her little sister, Skipper, were family because they looked alike, and that Mr. Potato Head and Mrs. Potato Head were family because they were married. Now that I am grown, my understanding of family has matured, and many sources have helped shape my belief. Carol Shields points out in her article, “Family Is One of the Few Certainties We Will Take with Us Far into the Future,” that all around us there are different definitions and symbols of family (Shields 558)....

It’s those little things she says and does that I have always teased her about that I find myself doing now.... [tags: Personal Narrative essay about my family]

This makes the novel all the more interesting and personal, with the author speaking directly through the protagonist. Alcott writes the novel from third person limited point of view, focusing chiefly on Josephine March. She develops the characters brilliantly throughout the entire work, especially the March girls.... [tags: Louisa May Alcott, Little Women]
