Proud - Meet Our Family's Newest Reader
Almost exactly two years ago I posted a photo of Jackson holding Go Dog Go, which in our household is considered the gateway book to "real" reading--rather than strictly robotic "sounding out." Today, at age three-and-two-thirds, Jason read me Go Dog Go. He pretty much taught himself to read via SuperWhy, Leap Frog Letter Factory and the Prep School Prep sight words videos, although we've been playing around with BOB Books just in the past month or so. He's actually been reading them with big brother Jackson--very sweet to see the brothers being links in each other's chain of literacy. Congrats, Jason, and welcome to the wonderful world of reading!
