My three-year old and I were in the kids’ section of the library the other day. It’s one of our favorite hangouts. There’s a nice little nook by a big picture window that they have furnished with overstuffed chairs, couches and rockers to sit on while you read. They also have the walls carpeted so that felt letters and shapes will cling to them (bins of felt are available for perusal), a magnetic board to put letters and shapes on, and some other toys. My little one loves to play there.
That’s what she was doing the other day, just playing in the kids’ section while I sat on a couch, reading and watching her enjoy herself. Across from us, there was another mother and her daughter. The daughter looked to be just a little older than mine—so, maybe about 4, or at the tops, 5. This child was reading a Step 3 Reader out loud to her mother. She was doing a remarkable job with it, too. I was impressed at first.
