Just needed to record two things.
1. E was desperate to read a book to H, but H wasn’t interested, only I would do. After I read it to H, I took E to another room and she read it with me. It’s a book we have had for years, and E knows it off by heart. But she read 2 pages, word by word. Recognising words she’d stumbled over yesterday in her other book, and doing amazingly well! She’s putting in so much effort.
2. E told me this evening that the reason she’s decided to try reading now is that she thought that if she didn’t she might not be able to read to her own children and that made her sad. Gulp!
