Yes, she reads

July 28, 2011   |   by Rachel

So I've been a little reluctant to post about this.  I guess I'm not sure how to not be that obnoxious parent.  But here goes.

Harriet reads.  She started reading in December, about 3 months after her 3rd birthday.  Yes, we taught her, but it was like pushing someone off of a balance beam.  Like her dad and her brother, she was ready to read really young.  Here's a video of her reading a book about the Trojan war.

Just to keep it in perspective early reading can be compared to early walking.   How early walking doesn't necessarily make someone an athlete, early reading doesn't necessarily make them a scholar.  Check out this article.
