The Chronicles of Narnia Is a Tough Read...Especially When You Can't Really Read
She can't read, not really. She's starting to learn, slowly, but of course, she's only four years old...and just barely, a whole two months since her fourth birthday, and so the reading thing is a reasonable challenge, but she tries. Oh my does she try. It makes me smile. Watching her find a corner of the couch and sneaking a giant book onto her lap, start flipping through the pages and mouthing words that likely mean nothing to her just yet. It's a start. Falling in love with reading is only partly about doing the actual deciphering of letters and sentences, the best part is imagination and quiet curiosity. Watching her give it her best go kind of illuminates the best parts...it's not always about what's on the page, it's what in your head and heart.
