In a year, Noah has gone from reading about “Dot and a Dog” to musings about the solar system

Noah, my 4-year-old son, is becoming quite the reader. When I picked him up last weekend, he had this book in his hands about the solar system. (From Usborne Children’s Books.)

I’m like, “What are you gonna do with that?”

He said, “I’m gonna read it.”

I told him that the book look kind of advanced for his age, but he said he could handle it.

And so, while we were in the car he opened the book and started reading. I caught him midway through with my iPhone and started recording (Yes, while I was driving – do not try this at home.)

Sorry about the weird editing. I’m just learning how to use the video editor on YouTube. I love the way Noah pronounces his words. “In this photo you can see…” So cute. And he is shown such improvement from this time last year, when I recorded him reading Bob’s Books.

Here is that video from a year ago. See how far Noah has come.

I showed Noah this video of himself the other day and he hated it. “Don’t play that video,” he said.

“Why not,” I said, “you look pretty cool in it.”

He said: “I read like a little boy in that video. I’m a big boy and can really read now.”

Oooookay.

    That is amazing at 4 years old! Definitely ‘gifted and talented’ as they say in our school district – he is going to demand a lot from teachers. Hopefully they can challenge him sufficiently.
