Grown-up reading

Toby came home with his first proper book assigned by his teacher for reading practice.

It’s a Roald Dahl book too, which is pretty great news for us because Toby is really enjoying all things Dahl and it’s given him fresh motivation with his reading, which had disappeared a bit.

I’m glad because reading was becoming a real chore at home. I think the standard of reading books he’s been getting have been fine – better than some I’ve heard about but you have to question whether they do much to inspire children to actually enjoy reading.

Anyway I’m delighted that Toby’s teacher has been bold enough to give him a proper book and I will vow to exercise some patience as he works his way through it and hopefully his reading will go from strength to strength.
