An Ardent Desire To Read

This adorable little girl is the daughter of a friend. She just celebrated her first birthday last month. As you can see from the photo below, she has an ardent desire to read. She reads her elder brother’s school books, Mom’s magazines, and Dad’s newspaper. She can’t read yet, but she thinks she knows how to read.

So the newspaper is upside down. But that doesn’t stop her from trying to read. If everyone else at home can read, well so can she!

Her mom complains that she’s hyperactive, her favorite activity being constantly jumping over furniture. But she doesn’t behave that way when there are guests in the house. Because then, she reads. She would show how important knowledge is to her.

So much to do, and so little time. She has to balance everything – rest, food, talk, play, bath, read – and growing up all at the same time!

For now, she has to read the latest news, for later it’s time to play.

    Isn’t it eye-opening to see a child in a moment like this? It makes us really understand our responsiblity to nurture our little ones.

    Oh that’s adorable! I hope Nisa is right about it being a sign of intelligence – I have a great pic of my son “reading” Parent’s Magazine a few months ago, so cute…
