Although we have had many adventures traveling the country in an Airstream trailer over the past year, I have to say that watching my daughter learn to read is probably the most exciting thing I've seen in a long time.

When she was learning to talk as a baby, I was counting the words she knew: 4, 5, 6, 10, 20, 50 and suddenly her vocabulary exploded beyond counting. Reading has been exactly the same. A few months ago we were working with flash cards on "sight words" and now suddenly she's sitting down and reading entire books about dinosaurs and wizards all by herself.
