Daddy is teaching Sophie to write lowercase letters.
I was thinking about my post the other day about our kids learning to read at a young age. In our family two of our boys showed an interest in words and reading when they were really young. But for my other two sons, reading didn't really "click" until about 3rd grade. I think every child is different and a child who learns to read later can be just as good at reading as someone who is reading at age 3 or 4.
My second son, Charles, hated learning to read. He loved being read to, and at age 3 he sat through the entire Little House series, and many other chapter books I read to him, but he thought the stories for beginner readers were dumb. He just plain did not want to read, "see Jane run" or any of the simplistic books for beginners. At the beginning of third grade, just when I was starting to get a little worried, he picked up a 400 page Redwall book and has been an avid reader ever since :)
