Welcome back to another week of the Ordinary Moments. If you haven’t joined in before this is a weekly linky that launches every Sunday morning and is open until midnight on the following Saturday. It’s a linky that celebrates any ordinary moments in your life – or the not so ordinary some weeks too. Basically – anything goes. I’ll be sharing and commenting on the posts that are linked up during the week and there’s a badge at the bottom of the post if you’d like to add it to yours too.
LP has loved reading since she started school. As soon as she learnt the sounds that the letters made, the sounds that special friend pairs of letters made and then the words that they made when all put together – she was off. Reading was her thing and there was no stopping her.
She has come on leaps and bounds and now reads every morning when she wakes up, every night before bed and often at so many other points in between. She can’t get enough books and will almost inhale them, ploughing through them with such enthusiasm.
But, recently she has started reading books with chapters, opting to use her World Book Day voucher for a much older book and reading it over the course of that evening. Since then we have got her other books, all still with pictures and engaging writing – different fonts and littered around the pages – but ones that are longer than before, with chapters and page numbers.
The books she reads now have at least 70 pages. They’ll have quite in depth stories to them and she always can’t wait to see what happens to the characters at the end. I remember being just like this when I was younger, not being able to get enough of books and devouring them like nothing else.
LP is just like me when it comes to reading. A thirst for knowledge, a need to broaden her imagination and just a love of being in a completely different world. I love seeing her read, happily curled up on a chair with a good book and I remember myself as a child – and I see the adult in her too. I hope she carries on reading with such joy and passion for years to come.
If you have an ordinary moment this week, come and link up – I’m looking forward to reading the moments that you share and will comment and share them on Twitter through the course of the week. Thanks so much for taking part.
