Since Bug developed a sudden interest in letters and sounds, I figured that starting to read wouldn't be too far behind and it turned out that I was right. Developmentally, he has approached this milestone the same way as he always does. While he has loved having books read to him since day one, he resisted anything to do with reading with his trademark stubbornness until he decided it was time. Just a couple of months ago, he knew most (but not all, and not necessarily in the right order) of the alphabet song. Now, he is actually sounding out words and reading on his own. We have the first set of Bob books out from the library. He has read the first nine books all by himself. There are only three more in the first set, so I guess that means I had better get the second set on our hold list!
