Molly Reads a Word

While driving Molly and Claire home from school this afternoon, Molly was looking at a picture book, as she often likes to do.  She tends to sort of babble about the pictures while she reads, and we don’t always listen very carefully to her.  About five minutes into examining the book today, though, Molly said, “That word is ‘Luke'”.  At a stop light, I asked her to show me the word, and sure enough, she pointed right at the word “Luke” in the story.

So that is officially the first word that Molly has read (that I know of) besides her own name.  Molly must have recognized the word from a friend’s name, but still… preschool literacy is working for Molly!
