Learning to Read

"Babies are born with the instinct to speak, the way spiders are born with the instinct to spin webs. You don't need to train babies to speak; they just do. But reading is different."
— Steven Pinker

"To learn to read is to light a fire; every syllable that is spelled out is a spark."
— Victor Hugo, Les Miserables

Andrew read a book aloud to me today. He was ecstatic. I was so proud. This kid absolutely fascinates me. I love him.

I can't wait to see you again so you can read to me! Gramma LOVES books, and you can read to me anytime.
