The Power Of Learning How To Read...

I came home from running at the lake and discovered that Landon had read his very first book all by himself. I could hardly believe it. Landon sat down on the couch and tried to read the second book to the series called "How Do Dinosaurs Get Well Soon?" by Jane Yolen and Mark Teague. He claimed it was too hard and wanted to re-read "How Do Dinosaurs Say Good Night?" I wasn't sure if he could do it without my help but he managed just fine. It was really hard not to help. He kept on reminding me he didn't want my help. Slowly but surely he read the how book by himself. He has only read those little reader books but this was his first time reading a real picture book. I'm so proud of him. I told him, its not fair. I always want to able to read him book. The little guy is growing up way too fast.
