Whitney went to the books we keep in our living room end table and picked out Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See? Then she sat down on the floor and began to read it out loud and sign the words. Whitney doesn't do consonants but you can hear the vowel sounds pretty clearly and see her sign some of the pages of the book.
We've really tried to encourage reading in our home and we have Whitney read to us as part of her regular routine. And we've know for a while that she can read. But it was so exciting to see that she likes to read and that she chose to read instead of doing something else, even if it was just for a few minutes.
