Reading Machine

Our little Carina has become quite the reader lately. She has been reading sight words and simple books that she brings home from Kindergarten, but something just clicked suddenly. She read her first two "real" books from the library last week. For those of you looking for a fun book, Sally goes to the Mountains, is adorable. Carina was all smiles after reading these books for me. She of course got many hugs and cheers from the whole family. We sure love her.

Isn't it so amazing when kids learn to read? It's like a miracle. Letters that are meaningless one moment, are magic the next.

Yeah for Carina!!! Ellie's still working on it. Like you said, it just hasn't clicked yet. It clicked with Fisher really early in Kinder and he could read everything, so I'm anxiously awaiting for Ellie to take off one of these days.
