spent the day with my friend’s twins the other day. Twins who are learning to read, sounding out the words, trying to make sense of the stories in their books, and it made me nostalgic for when I learned. I still remember the distinct moment that the concept of reading clicked, with a meglomaniacal realization that, all I needed to do was learn the words and I could read anything in the whole world. (That’s my kind of world domination.)
Do you remember learning to read? What’s your earliest reading memory?
I do not remember learning to read. My Mom says that I learned very early. My earliest reading memory is sitting on my Dad in the living room. He was in a flannel shirt and I was reading Hop on Pop.
