That's awesome! Keep with reading and show a lot of emphasis on it!

My 5yo is reading The Diary of a Wimpy Kid books. He is just like his older brother. When my oldest was 5, he read Frankenstein in one evening.

My family has always been big on reading. I read to my children before they could. I read in the car line every day. Both my parents are always reading.

The more you do it, the more they want to try!

That really is great. A lot of parents think teaching their kid to read is their teacher's job. You're setting her up for success by teaching her before she heads to school.

I know, and then they blame the teacher because the child did not succeed at it.
But I guess that it also depends on the child. Like my 5 year old knew all the colors and majority of the shapes and numbers at home cause I taught them to her, but when she got to school the teacher said she didn't know a couple of them.come to find out that she figured out that if ahe pretends not to know them she plays more games having to do with them, like painting the shapes and numbers which she likes to do. But I digress thank you and my goal is to give her all the tools for success.
