I have to celebrate a proud Mama Moment! My youngest has never been a reader. She doesn’t like books, has little interest in books, and it has always been a struggle to get her to practice reading.
At the beginning of this year school year, she has actually asked to go to the bookstore. I have bought her the books she wants, and she reads a chapter, then abandons it. A little piece of me dies when she does this, but she hasn’t found the one to transform into a passionate reader.
This weekend, my husband took her to the bookstore. She wanted Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone. I would have said no, you’re not ready for it yet. But he bought it for her. And guess what, she is reading it, and LOVING IT!
