Well I have to say there were times I didn’t think I would see the day but, Ethan who is 7, has read his first book!
It was one he got with his World Book Day voucher.
Now you can’t stop him and he is reading a few pages from “The Magic Finger” by Roald Dahl every evening without fail.
It isn’t just that he is reading, it is more that he wants to read which is what makes me so proud and happy. He still struggles on words but he is enjoying and understanding it that matters.
He doesn’t even want me to read to him anymore, he wants to do the reading himself.
We went to the library last week and he asked to order more “Barry Loser” books and also “Horrid Henry” and
“The Wimpy Kid” so whatever has happened to him has to be a good thing.
Wow – here is definitely one “World Book Day” success story!
