First book Joseph read to me!

After, years of me reading to him, Joseph finally can return the favor . 

I think I already mentioned this in the kindergarten post, but Joseph has learned an amazing amount of academic skills since starting school.  I’m still a bit ambivalent about the amount of focus on academics, but I am very proud of his skills!

To be clear, it is a very simple book.  He is not reading fluently, but can sound out most simple words, recognize many words, and figure a lot out from the context.

YAAAAYYYYY for reading! Reading is so exciting... just think of the new worlds that will be opened for our children (and perhaps some quiet time for the mommies??!! Someday!). I know that I make mental lists of books that I can't wait for Sophia to read... the Giver, Narnia, Where the Red Fern Grows, everything by Madeline L'Engel, etc. Magic.
