Write a brief paragraph explaining the quote’s significance to the book (3 points each page for a total of 30 points). For example: Ms. Kidd is referring to our human need for acceptance and belonging. Stories give us this by recording characters and experiences that anyone can identify with. This gives us an escape from loneliness. No matter what one’s situation is, a story can be found to let one know they are not alone; someone else has been there too. 3. Write a brief paragraph as to the quote’s significance to you (3 points each page for a total of 30 points). For example: Ms. Kidd’s quote is significant to me because I escape into stories. There is a story out there to fit my every mood, wish, and desire. There is no way to experience all the things I’d like to, so I read books. Loving books, makes me a natural storyteller. If I don’t have my own to tell, I’ll tell someone else’s story. 3. Create a visual (picture or symbol) for each selected quote (1 point each page for a total of 10 points).
