All kids learn to read at their own pace. There’s probably no way to speed or slow down the process. Like potty training, they do it when they’re ready. Period.
Today, we were pulling out of our parking space at the grocery store. Peter pointed ahead and told us to look at the Jeep. Jeep, huh? We don’t know anyone who owns a Jeep. We have no Jeep toys. There are no Jeep advertisements on TV that he may have seen. There was, however, a huge Jeep logo on the rear-mounted spare tire. JEEP. I asked him who we know with a Jeep. He said. “No one”. I asked him how he knew it was a Jeep. He told me, “It said Jeep, Dad”.
I’m looking out for a Maserati now!
