Taylor The Reader




Today Taylor finished her first full on chapter book. She has been reading some easier chapter books like Frog and Toad etc. for awhile now but I had no idea she was ready for what she's read in the past 24 hrs. We were browsing through her schools scholastic book fair and I told her I'd get her a book if she could pick something that I thought would challenge her. She went right to this Barbie Mariposa book. A total girly, girl book of course. I flipped through it and it definitely appeared hard enough so I told her it would be something we could do together. So that was yesterday morning and this afternoon she finished this ten chapter, 94 paged book in 24 hrs with little to no help from me! She doesn't just read either, she reads with passion and laughter, interacting with the suspense etc. Wow, I was totally blown away! I guess it's time for me to start finding some new books for her to read!

I may be a little biased, but I think Taylor is the smartest girl ever! I am way-impressed!

Somehow the part about her reading with passion doesn't surprise me at all!! I think you're going to have to spend more time at the library because she sounds like she is going to go through books faster than you would be able to buy them! Way to go Taylor!
