I’ll never forget the first book I “read”. Actually, I memorized it and I was four years old. It was my favorite book.
The Man Who Took Seven Baths. The story of Namaan.
My mom still has it, too. (side note: the Arch Series is WONDERFUL for children)
When I was ten, I taught my little sister how to read. She was six. And then my youngest sister caught on the next year, she was five. They learned how to read with Little Bear.
And just recently, Cy read his first book…like two days ago, recently. All by himself. He picked it out at the library and we plodded through it. Every day since then, he’s read it.
He wants to know about everything, how things work, how our bodies grow, what makes people sick, how many stars are in the sky, how to build things and I told him that once he learns to read he’ll be able to know the answers to his questions. Every bit of knowledge is trapped in letters.
“Read everything you can,” his papa said. And he is trying.
For his birthday, I bought him a book on biology. Nearly every night, he sits and stares at the pictures, we read it together and he tackles a few words on his own. He wants to learn so badly about how our bodies function. Soon, my little one, you are so close…
Do you remember the first book you read?
