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!
