We’re lucky to have the benefit now of watching our 7-year-old read enthusiastically to her 7-month-old baby brother. Ancona’s special teachers helped our daughter blossom after initial struggles and frustration with reading. We feel so blessed to have a child who now loves to read! Bonnie L. Wishne October 21, 2012 at 9:18 pm Thank you Amy! Rebecca October 29, 2012 at 2:51 am Thank you for posting this story about you and your daughter, Bonnie. I love reading with my boys, especially now that Caleb is letting me read him the whole page without grabbing the book, although that’s fun too. I love to walk into my classroom and hear children buzzing about books they are reading, swapping books, and sharing their reading lives. Bonnie L. Wishne November 16, 2012 at 8:47 pm It’s so great to watch a child ease into reading and recognize the worlds of information and pleasure that books contain!
