Reading is a huge part of our routine in this house – we read bedtime stories to the children every night. Even though Gemma is a brilliant reader and more than capable of reading by herself, we still enjoy reading to her, and don’t intend that to stop anytime soon.
Jacob is now 5 and has just started in Year 1. He is not as keen a reader as Gemma, and has struggled with reading in the past.
Last night, Jacob showeds us just how far he has come since his first days at school.
It may not seem like a big deal to some, but for our little boy, who is only interested in football and cars, this is a huge step forwards. Not just the fact that he read the book out loud to us, but that he wanted to. And I think that speaks volumes, and is a sign of another book lover in the making.
