"Books build a stairway to your imagination."
The first time he picked up a book by himself.
He is 8.
Now, I have hope.
* 3 times through the 100 Lessons to Read book
* Phonics Museum for 1st and 2nd grade
* Spelling with Spell, Write to Read ( s-l-o-w-l-y!)
*Lots of reading aloud by Mommy
Then, out of desperation, a whole year off.
.... And, then it happened!
He is reading!
