But I have to say that watching her grow has given me such a different perspective on the reading process. I thought I understood it as I watched my students become little readers and authors each year. But to watch the process grow year after year...little by little...sounds to letters to letter sounds to words to phrases to sentences to books. And on top of it all....love. True love. Can't pull her away from the book section at Target love. Can't keep up with all the stacks of books all over the house love.
The transformation is just remarkable to me.
