Why do Writers Write and Readers Read?

Hello Everyone!
Great day in first grade today!!  These kids make me smile!!  Today we had a big discussion about the reasons writers write books, and why readers read books.  I was trying to get them to realize that authors write books to Persuade, Inform, and Entertain.  You know...author's purpose...PIE.  I let them brainstorm  individually, and with a friend.  Then we put their ideas on our new anchor chart.  I think they came up with some pretty amazing ideas! Then we brainstormed some reasons why readers read.  This list was even better!!!  I think their ideas are even better than PIE!!!
Way to go kiddos!!
