Malini starts reading


Daughter is turning 5 and she already read 18 sentences ALL BY HERSELF................. !!!

She told me to buy her an 'easy book' and I did that. Bought her the Book, 'Goat in a Boat' and SHE READ A FULL STORY :)) I loved every minute of it and even felt rewarded all over again!! I started reading out to her when she was barely 4 months old and she would stare at the pictures with full focus and curiosity as I turned page after page.

The neighborhood book shop 'CROSSWORD, Powai' has been my second home ever since we landed in Mumbai and I can't stop without a word of gratitude, especially to 'Nisha' who works in the children's section and has read out many stories to her. Sooo Happy, Guys! Want to share this moment of joy!

  1. Wow! that's a big achievement.
    I have been trying to read to my soon to be one year old. But all she is interested in turning the pages herself and finally throwing it away for a new toy.:(

  4. Great milestone Lekshmi!! Its so amazing to see these little ones do all this..!!

    With Samvit, as of now its picture books. He is picking up words and he points to things he knows and makes us tell the word. He says the word if he knows it himself. He was very interested until he recently discovered the alphabet and numbers book... that's his current fav. He's learning alphabets now...and whatever he does not know he will simply say 'O'! Its so cute to listen to... Im only sure its gets better and better to listen to them talk and then read on their own!!

  5. Congrats Lekshmi! That's awesome news...! btw the sketch looks like Malini too...did you do that one or is courtesy google? :)

    I have been reading to Mia since she was 2 months old...she loves the farmyard animals book because of all the sounds I make! Her latest interest though is in eating the book. Hmm...food for thought?!

  6. Ramya, hw old is he ? before 5 is considered early. 5 to 6 is right.

    Deeps, it feels like winning a lottery! Keep reading and wait for your turn..Am still somewhere up there :)

    Ms Gypsy, Mia will soon make the sounds herself and then you'll find competition :)
