XY is able to read some books on her own now. I'm not sure if she memorises them or she recognises the words as they are simple books with lots of repetition and not too many words. But recently, she managed to read a whole book with quite a lot of words. It's Three Little Pigs from the Robin series. I suspect she's still guessing some words by looking at the pictures and the first alphabet of some words. But she's able to read word by word correctly.
There was one day, she asked didi to sit down and she read Three Little Pigs to him. And surprisingly, he sat there quietly listening to jie jie's reading. From then on, he'll pass that particular book for jie jie to read. Last night, PaPa was reading to jie jie so when he shoved the book to her, I read for him instead. But he was not very interested. Didn't sit still and kept turning the pages (mommy's voice not so sweet, maybe?). So later, jie jie read to him and as you can see from the picture, he was looking at the book intently while his personal storyteller did her work. Awww... what a heartwarming moment.
