Reading to Me
Every day when PlumGirl wakes up from her nap she asks me to lay down in bed next to her to read her a story. We keep a special stack of books next to her bed just for these after-nap storytimes, and we add to it regularly.
Her latest favorite is Harold and the Purple Crayon, which she refers to as “boy”.
Yesterday when I went to read to her, she decided that she would rather read the story to me. She had been “predicting” the story to me as a read, but this was the first time she showed interest in reading the story herself.
She flipped through the pages and said a word for the pictures she could name.
Then this morning, she read to our dog. I cannot wait for her to read to me more often.
