I am familiarizing Celest with the laptop and the Technotutor reading and vocbulary-building software, as well as with books for some time now. You can see how she has an understanding of the concept of a book, turning the pages, and reading (pointing to words and making sounds).
I have also placed words on objects around the house to get her used to words, as well as the fact that words are symbols that represent real things.
She’s 10 months old, and some have told me this is too young, but I am not about to place a limit on the possibilities. I am not thinking about right now, but the years to come shortly. I have no expectations for right now, but I am opened to being surprised!
Celest has been precocious in many ways, and I am prepared for consistency and patience. I also know that the only way to start, is to start, lol! Why not?
