We are now officially a fully literate household. Miriam just finished her very first chapter book "Five True Dog Stories". She was so proud of herself and we are proud of her too. Today we are off to let her pick out her very own special bookmark to mark the occasion. Way to go My little one!

 The last few riveting pages about Balto, the dog who saved Nome.

When my Mom was little her Dad decided he was going to raise readers.  Books were not a big thing in  his family growing up but he changed that for my mom and her siblings, and for his grandchildren, and now his great-grandchildren.  Thank you for the endless story reading Grandpa Smokey.  It looks like your plan worked.
