Raising a Reader
Thank you again for contributing photos to this weekly Monday feature, Caught in the Act … of Reading. Thank you also to multiple photo contributors, Mama C and the Boys, and parents of Issie and Lucie. It’s really fun to see your children loving to read as well as making steady progress! And please take a minute to view the video of older sister Riley reading to her little brother. Blue Hat, Green Hat has never been more fun and how exciting that Riley can read to her brother and does it so nicely! I have to bribe my daughters to read to their little brother; they view it as a chore!
I always need photos and I am posting them in the order received. If you want to contribute a photo or video, and we have one this week of xx from Practical Parenting, please email me at pragmaticmom.com (at) gmail (dot) com. THANK YOU!
From Mama C and the Boys, Sammy working on sentences that I make with his site words from kindergarten…
I love Mama C and the Boys blog and I have been reading it regularly since I signed up for the email subscription. I find that though her blog is about trans-racial families and trans-racial adoption, her posts speak deeply to me about the joys of parenting and some of her posts are truly poetry. She is a mama who catches the little things in life that make you realize and appreciate the joys and rewards of parenting.

Quicktime Video of Riley, the older sister, reading Blue Hat, Green Hat by Sandra Boynton to her little brother, Leo. She reads with great enthusiasm and it’s such a darling video!
