The Switch Turned On…

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!
