They’ve always loved books, being read to them, but it seems like just yesterday reading out loud or on their own was like pulling teeth. Their goal was 30 minutes a day reading aloud to me a book of their choice. Now this week both Sunshine and Mister Man have both completed multiple beginning chapter books.
It happened in what seemed like overnight. Mister Man finished Geronimo Stilton The Haunted Hotel and could not wait to go to the library to get another. We didn’t make it t the library that same day s I suggested he pick a book from our shelves to read instead. He choose a Ready Freddy book and git started immediately. The next day he had finished it and could tell me about the book including many details. My mouth dropped! Amazing. In the last week he has read 2 Ready Freddy books, 2 Geronimo Stilton Books and a Magic Tree House Book.
Not to be outdone by her brother, Sunshine has begun reading more on her own as well. She is loving anything involving horses so she started with Circle C Beginnings books. She’s in the middle of the second one after devouring the first one with excitement.
All I can say is I am very thankful for libraries!
