This is one of those posts I'm writing because I want to record the moment lest I forget in my toddler induced dementia.
Kaycie read her first book to me on Saturday.
I won't lie, she freaked me out.
I'd read Biscuit to her only once but it had gone with her to her grandparents' house a time or two where they had read it 3 or 4 times according to my mom.
She brought it to me to read and after the first page she started reading it to me. I followed along the words with my finger and she got every one right up to the last two pages.Yesterday she brought it out while my in-laws were her and sat at her table by herself and read it again.
We bought several of these first reader books a few weeks ago since she was going to start having an interest soon but I wasn't expecting it quite so soon.
Yes, I realize she was mostly reading from the pictures, but that's a first step in learning to recognize the repetitive words in the early readers. It's shows motivation and a readiness to start the process a little bit.
I'm more than a little proud of her and her eagerness to read. I can't imagine where she gets her love of books. Oh, wait...
