Little Reader

Canaan has been loving reading this summer. It's awesome because, though he can read fairly well, he didn't have much interest there for a while. I found a couple things helped to turn this around, and now the boy spends a good part of each day reading.

First, we started regular trips to the library (bringing home books that are "new" to him and "chapter books" he could feel excited about finishing). The biggest hits so far have been "Fly Guy", "Flat Stanley", and "Nate the Great".

Second, I started placing a selection of our library books "on display" each night on our kitchen table. Each morning he comes down to see some "new" books and he drawn to them immediately and starts reading.

Figuring out a way to better read one line at a time.
