Is it really reading? Or has my little boy memorized his favorite books? Does it start there? Memorization to actual comprehension? Whatever it is. I am happy to hear him read out aloud together with me before naptime & bedtime each day :)
Because of Max and his private boat (main character of book above), Santi has a sudden new interest in the boats we see docked on the beach.
Here's another book he knows by heart. This book below was just a hand-me-down by my little cousins from New Jersey. Much appreciated Tito Robert, thank you!
I am so glad to have shipped that heavy box of books here. A shipment of balikbayan box costs P750 each from Manila to Palawan. It really is worth every peso because I haven't seen any book stores here (even in the city) and yes, we don't have television. So, my son relies on nature and books for learning, which I totally prefer :)
Read up! Here's a link about reading & language development another one here.
To other moms - don't you love it when you read to them with their utmost attention until they sleep? ;)
