I have been reading since a ridiculously young age, and loving it. Reading is one of my very favorite activities. A person can get utterly engrossed in a good book. As a parent, I am so eager to introduce my children to that world . . . the passion of reading and loving it.
Ashton started reading at 3.6 years old. His preschool teacher surprised me one day by having Ashton read me a book. I knew he knew many sight words, but listening to him read was . . . phenomenal. He received his first library card when he was six, and has enjoyed checking out a variety of books.
Jackson has been begging me to teach him to read. We are starting small, usually books that contain one to two words per page. He is doing great! He was downright desperate to get his own library card. So, since he has reached the magic age of 5 he was allowed! He received his own card, bag, and book. It was a very exciting day for him, and for me. We are going to continue practicing reading with Jack, and I can only hope he will fall in love with reading as much as I have.
My secret dream is for all my children to become little book worms!
