Will and I went down to pick up Halle from school today; it took a couple extra minutes to get out of the busy parking lot, but the whole way home Will was jibber-jabbin’ away and I was listening to some music. Halle was just quiet the whole 12-14 minutes. As we pulled into our neighborhood..
Me: Halle, why are you so quiet?
Halle: I’m just reading Daddy
Me: What are you reading?
Halle: My new book, got it from Scholastic Book Club today…
Me: Is it good?
Halle: So far, I’m on page 75.
Me: When did you start it?
Halle: In the parking lot, when we got in the car, when you picked me up.
My Thought (didn’t say this one out loud)… 75 pages in 12 minutes… She’s 8… I don’t think I had read 75 pages total when I was 8.
Sometimes my kids amaze me.

“Readers are leaders,” to quote the inestimable Charlie Bell. Sounds like she’s off to a great start.
