>Look Who’s Reading Now!

Little Man is reading!

As a mom, not to mention a homeschool mom, this is a pretty big deal!
These are a couple of the books he got for his bday, in the new amazing Leapfrog Tag system (how do they do that?). No, he’s not really reading those yet, it’s just a cute pic.

But he is actually reading – decoding letter sets into understood words and short sentences.
Yes, it’s just the “Bob” books, but we are all pretty thrilled.Anyhow, this is one of those things that kids come to on their own time frame, I’m convinced. Some do it sooner, some do it later…but only when they are ready. But no matter when it happens…even these tentative baby steps, it’s just exciting.
I told him “Reading is power, if you can read, you can do anything!”
We both think that’s just cool, and true.

Now, if only they made the “Bob” books in Amharic…..then maybe I’d be reading too!

  1. >That is awesome! My daughter (home 2 years) spoke, read and wrote no English when she arrived. Three days ago, she read The Snowy Day for her little sister’s preschool class (talk about an audience!) without a single mistake. When she looked up at me after finishing and smiled, tears came to my eyes. I was so proud. Big congrats from us!Jane
