Luke and Nina have shared my excitement! It has been a usual scene this week to find a pile of books missing here, or a box half-emptied there, only to discover, a few minutes later, Luke and Nina hiding themselves among the missing books, pouring over one after another after another... As a matter of fact, this morning, the first thing Luke did upon waking was abscond with a book from the sorting pile. I could not have been happier than to witness my little literature (and, admittedly, fluff) lover make this his first activity choice of the morning reading a book. And, I was happier still when, just moments afterward, he began "reading" the book to Nina! Not only was he pretending to read by using the picture cues, but he was occasionally sounding out a word here and there. Yes, our little man – with great thanks to Bob Books that I borrowed from the library for my tutoring students – has started to dabble in "real" reading, concentrating on sounding out consonant-vowel-consonant words
