Rogan has been our reluctant reader over the last few years.
He learnt to read later than some of the other children and I was fine with that knowing when he was older he would just fly with his reading.
Then it occured to me that Rogan didn't dislike reading, he just didn't love it.
When I was trying to work this out I realised that it just hasn't been a priority for him. You see Rogan is very creative. He makes things all the time. He is always sewing toys for siblings, creating cards, posters and whatever comes into his head.
If he is not doing this he is outside observing and being part of nature.
When you are in the throws of exploring nature and creating delightful gifts, drawing and painting and when you are putting all that energy into these things there just isn't time for reading.....YET.I have always enjoyed capturing this moment, the moment when a child is immersed in a great story for the first time. I still remember exactly where and what position Kynan was in when I got a photo of him engrossed in a book, well Motor Bike Magazine for the first time.So on Monday Rogan was totally into a book we got second hand for a 12 days of Christmas gift.
If anything can excite young readers I am convinced it is Enid Blyton Books.
All our children have read them to varring degrees when they were young readers and FINALLY Rogan has discovered them too.
What a great day for Rogan and a reading household. Welcome to a lifetime of exciting adventures.
Congratulations and enjoy the wonderful world that is now yours through the world of books.
