It has been a LOOooong time since I have consistently sat down with LD to listen to him read. Instead, he has been doing independent reading primarily on his own. This week I was pretty impressed with his intonation, rhythm and general reading ability. Grams gave us a children’s encyclopedia set and among other things he read some articles to me on birds and fossils. He’s also reading through a Magic Tree House book.
I’m really very impressed with the encyclopedia set. I doubt anyone would run out and buy them (as they are copyrighted 1960), but I think we’re going to get a lot of wonderful use from them. They’re short enough to read through quickly, have reasonably good illustrations, are concise and are really quite packed with information.
