I have been looking forward to this moment from before the day my children were born. And today it was here. Joseph read his first book! Hurray! A little phonics book about Thomas the tank engine was my son's gateway into reading. The words are simple and of course few. Jam. Stop. Happy. Thomas. And. Very simple, very easy. But it is his first book! The first time he actually read something. I wish now we had taken a picture.
