Sometimes Progress Comes in Spurts

When it comes to Mr. j and reading, sometimes he makes big leaps all at once. First it was BOB Books followed by Piggie and Gerald.

And then there was a pause while he resisted anything more challenging.

Then it was Mary Pope Osborne’s Magic Tree House books. First a few chapters at a time and lately entire books in one sitting.

Today? “Harry Potter and the Sorcerer’s Stone” at his request and all by himself. Two chapters and first and then a pause to play. Two more chapters this afternoon and he’s on a roll.

Some days it’s good to be reminded that I’ve done something right. Instilling a love of books and reading in my children is a pretty big one. It’s a victory I’ll be glad to take credit for.
