I will write more about her achievement tomorrow, but I just had to note the date for posterity. As far as I’m concerned, reading tops the list of all kid milestones. The discovery that letters form words and words form stories that transport you to imaginary and wonderful places, is simply amazing and chill-inducing. This is an exciting day.
Go, Sophie, Go!
