jasper lilith loves to read 🙂

her version of reading at this age is a combination of two styles…  the first style is pointing at objects and naming them or pointing at animals that she recognizes and making the sound for them (like “moo” for a cow…)  and the second style is a weird little conglomeration of made up words, sounds and real words…  listening to it is like hearing a foreign language that you sort of understand – you recognize every 3rd or 4th word but context is lost without the body language (or in our case, a picture book)…

the fun part is watching her get into “reading” out loud, listening to her make the animal noises and hearing her little “the end” at the finish!  it cracks me up…

arnetta, you have a starring role in this video as well with jon providing off camera assistance 🙂
