Learning to read is HARD! When we’re little learning to do anything is exciting, but reading especially is such a difficult task. That’s why parents are urged to read to their kids from a very young age, and keep them engaged in letter-learning and other reading related games. And for the most part, that helps. Something else that helps are contextual clues: you know, those puzzles where the letter A is on an APPLE, or where CAT is written on a cat. Unfortunately, this little boy has learned his letters, but doesn’t quite understand those contextual clues yet. His mama wanted to show off what a good reader he is…only, he’s not quite there yet. When she points to a box and tells him to read the letters, he does so, and it’s impressive! But when she asks him what’s inside? Wellll…let’s just say he’s got a little ways to go still. Take a look!
Reading is hard. But I’m guessing this little one will be there soon enough.
