High Five


Will got a subscription to High Five (the toddler version of Highlights Magazine) for Christmas from my parents. He loves it. He got the most recent issue about 3 weeks ago, and I'm not exaggerating when I say we've read it from front to back at least once a day since then.

The other day he amazed me. We got the magazine out to read before bed and he told me he wanted to read some of the stories/poems. We opened to the first page, a poem titled "Crescent Moon", and Will proceeded to "read" the whole thing, moving his finger along the words at approximately the right pace. The next page was a comic strip that he read as well. He can also read "Old Mother Hubbard" and a couple other things.

I totally know that he's not really reading the words, but I can't help but think he's not far from it!

That's our boy! Did he actually have all the words to the poems memorized?
