Daddy doesn’t often comment on the posts and pictures I share on the blog, Twitter and Facebook, but here’s what he posted himself, after I shared a video of last night’s bedtime story. I thought it would be nice to have Daddy’s view of things for a change:
“This is my little boy Alfie reading a story to his big sister and mummy. The story is called “owl babies”and it is one of his favourites. Alfie has learnt to read because we read to him every night and we are very proud of his excellent reading!”
Although being read to every night can only take part of the credit for his learning to read, it has certainly helped him to develop a love of books and stories, which has helped to make him eager to learn, and to practise his new skill.
