Book Through Thursday: Learning

Do you remember learning to read? What’s your earliest reading memory?

I learned to read very young. I don’t remember the specific age, but I was reading before a lot of my peers. I still have a very poor handle on when kids start learning to read, actually!

My only memory of learning to read involves my brother making me read a children’s biography of Abraham Lincoln. He was following lines with his finger and asking me to read, but I kept reading the line below what he was indicating. He was not happy about that.

I don’t remember the actual process of sounding out words and the like. I just remember being able to read!

  1. I was very young when I read about Lincoln too. And Johnny Tremaine, who was a silversmithing apprentice whose hand was terribly burned.
    This particular prompt is bringing such memories back for me.
    Thanks for sharing.

  2. I don’t remember learning how to read, but I remember being much faster than everyone else in class. I started kindergarten when I was 4, and I remember being allowed to use the ‘big kids’ library, because I’d read all of the classroom books. lol
