My middle child, Sam, has discovered the joy of reading. In the last 6 months he has started reading at the same level of his big brother and has quickly gone through all of his books.
It has been so fun to watch this unfold in him. Trent and I find him all over the house with a book in his hand. I would love to say that this is the result of good parenting, but really he has pursued this all on his own.
He got his very own library card and picked out 3 books for this week. We also signed him up for the summer reading program and he has already completed 2 of his books and written them down. His favorites right now are the Magic Tree House series and the Flat Stanley series.
