My sweet T is learning to read.
“Mum!! Do you know what?! I have happy tears in my eyes right now. Wanna know why?? Because when I look at the book, I can read a bunch of the words now. I have happy reading tears.” ~ T
Me too, T.
Is there anything more exciting to watch than a new reader unlocking the code?? Learning to read is a beautiful, happy tear worthy event!
One rainy Sunday when I was in the third grade, I picked up a book to look at the pictures and discovered that even though I did not want to, I was reading. I have been a reader ever since.
