First step in reading?

When we read together, ButterBean’s able to recognize and say a word out loud now!

There are a couple books where the main premise is a series of questions that the main characters answer with this word over and over until they find the right answer, and I think the combination of repetition and my pointing to it as I say it has gradually led to recognition for her.

It’s so much fun to read the questions and listen to her “read” that word out loud every time I point to it. Participatory reading rocks. And I’m so proud that her first word-recognition came at just 15 months – this bodes well for my nefarious uber-geek-family plan.

(The word, of course, is “NO.” Her favorite.)
