Then you begin to understand the words
Then you realize different words make sentences
Now you know what happens on each page, sort of like you are reading even if you don’t know the words
You are older, and can point out the book that you want read to you
You know a few of the words by sight as they go along with the story
What is that on the table, a box of cereal
Lots of words but the picture tells what you are eating
And you know the words when you see them
Now you know what those words are in the book and on the cereal box
Look ma, I’m reading!
You are now a reader and let the fun begin.
What do you remember about your early reading days?
