I love finding my kids all over our home reading and looking at books. If Cannon finds a place to read a book, Briggs usually finds a place right next to him.

Cannon has taken off in his reading. I love watching a kid when they figure out how to sound out words and that was Cannon a few months ago. Suddenly, the world became so much larger as he would sound out every sign he saw while in the car. He started asking what words meant. He moved from looking at books to sounding out words, to reading them. He read and signed off 80 books for his preschool class and every day he’d come home with a sticker on his shirt saying, “I read 15 books.” “I read 60 books.” And he was so proud to show off that sticker to anyone that would look at him.


Little readers grow to be big readers.
