Pookie asks everyday to use the computer. The majority of the time I tell him, “Yes, but you can play the reading game (verses Playhouse Disney or something similar)." Starfall.com is a free site with lots of fun games to help children learn to read. Monday night Pookie read to me, “Green Eggs and Ham” by Dr. Seuss. Sure it took him about half an hour, but considering he just turned five in January and isn’t even in Kindergarten, I think he did a great job. I have seen his self-esteem flourish with his knowledge of knowing he can read. And Gabbers loves that he can read to her.
