Aiden is a very good reader. He is in first grade and can read most third grade level books. I take a lot of pride in that. Reading came very naturally to him and it was in large part due to his wonderful preschool teachers who nurtured his love of books just as much as I did.
I haven’t read much for the enjoyment of reading in a long time. My life was just way too hectic. But earlier this year I finally finished a book I had been trying to read for a year and I remembered how much I love reading! My new mission is to make reading more of a family priority. When Aiden does his nightly 20 minutes of reading I sit and read along with him and I have Caleb look at his books. This is of course before our bedtime routine and the reading of a book there. Caleb loves books as much as Aiden and I hope they both keep this love going forever!
