Ever since my daughter was born, I have always read to my little girl but I don't read her picture books like you normally read to a two year old. Since she was born, my little Alice has always enjoyed reading chapter books. She has picture books, which she likes to sit on her own and look at the pictures, but when I'm reading to her, she enjoys reading what I'm reading. I've read her all of the Harry Potter books and all of the Shiloh books, W.I.T.C.H., and many others, some we've read more then once. My mother fusses at me for this and says we should read books on her level and that's the only way she'll learn how to read. At two and a half, my little girl can always recognize some words, like Open and closed (Like on a store) her name, my name (Sophie), and several others. She thinks I'm doing this all wrong but I enjoy the time we spend together reading and she loves these books, a lot of which she picked out, and she does understand the stories and she in entertained by them. My mother read the baby books to my sister and I and we were both reading very young so she thinks her way works best, but Alice is doing great with my system. What do you think?Answer Question
