Talking Treasure

Last night, Connor learned the importance of appropriately reading the quotation marks and puncuation in a book as we were taking turns reading a bedtime story.

The sentence was: "But the treasure!" hollered Braid Beard.

After reading it out loud to me, he looked up and said, "Why would the treasure be hollering Braid Beard? Treasure can't even talk!"

In his mind, it sounded like: But the treasure hollered, "Braid Beard!"

I thought it was absolutely adorable and hilarious. I LOVE this stuff from kids.

Totally loving how willing he is to read now, including books with lots of words on the pages. As recently as three weeks ago, this wasn't really the case. Getting him to read was a huge fight (he COULD read, just didn't want to), and now suddenly he's offering to read to me all the time. YAY!

That is so sweet! I forget about that part of reading sometimes. Its just second nature to read them that way.
