My four year old has been avoiding any attempts to teach him to read. I think it is a bit intimidating. Wanting to build up confidence, I gave it a shot with a super simple book.

He "read" almost the whole thing, thanks to the fact that there are only a few words used again and again in the whole book. His huge smile when we got to the end was very rewarding.
