Independent “Reading” for Toddlers

I snapped this picture last night while I was making dinner.  Jenna is 23 months old now, and very interested in books. It’s hard to tell what is actually happening in her brain in moments likes these, but I know it’s momentous.  She has most of her favorite books memorized now, so she might be retelling them to herself in her head, or she might just be looking at pictures.  I try to make sure she does at least 5-10 minutes of independent reading each day.

    This is excellent!!! My 16 month daughter loves to ”read”. I may need to catch some pics of her as well. She has also been ”writing” since she was 9 months old, so I recognize that she is very interested in written communication and I am so happy to have found your blog to help me foster her love and educate her at such a young age.
