The elder of our monkeys did the second lesson of How to Teach Your Child to Read in 100 Easy Lessons this morning over breakfast (at her insistence) and howled for more (almost literally). We told her that if she was good she could do another lesson tonight. There was much sssss-ing and mmmmmm-ing around the Darwin household this morning.
The only catch is, she doesn't really like writing the letters herself. She'd much rather instruct us in writing them for her. Still, she gamely filled a page with some M and S of her own construction, with regular variations in design just to keep things interesting.
We're thinking we'll launch into another chapter book that we already have, so Stewart Little or Charlotte's Web is probably next up on that front. I'm thinking probably Stewart Little.
