Junior J is finally reading! It has taken awhile for us to get to this point. I must admit I was getting worried when he was so reluctant to read to us, while all the kids around his age seemed to be reading fluently. He seemed to be able to recognize many words, but would clam up if we asked him to read anything to us.
However, these days, he's been picking up books and spending time trying to figure out the words (rather than just flipping through the pictures). He's also started reading to his little brother. :) I guess he's now more confident after all our Bob book sessions in the afternoon, and just immersing the kids in books has helped them to enjoy reading.
