Today, while reading the books Molly got out of her school library, we were sounding out some of the words we encountered.
Woohoo...Molly sounded out "pink milk" from a Charlie and Lola book. She was proud of herself but not half as proud as I was. For a little girl who already loves books, even though she can't read them yet, I am just plain thrilled to think of the worlds that are opening to her. I picture her cracking the door and peeking out on a limitless universe. Welcome! Welcome!
