Late Readers

We have been busy, and I have a bunch of pictures to post, but reading is on my mind. Raccoon is not interested in recognizing letters or numbers, although his writing and counting have improved. Late reading is fairly common in boys, I've heard, but the question I ask myself is, if it's going to take another year or so, what should I do in the meantime?

Tonight I found an answer - focus on expanding his vocabulary.

Now that I can do. He picks up new words easily, and like non-fiction books, so this is a good match for us with interests and skills.
