Our poor AJ has had such a struggle with reading, with due cause. He only attended school for 1 year in Ethiopia and they called it "baby school", which we interpreted as pre-school. They sang songs and only met for a few hours a day. Not the way we do pre-school in the States, for sure. We put AJ in 2nd grade last year and school has been a struggle. Imagine my surprise tonight when he grabbed Green Eggs and Ham and proceeded to read (with minimal help) for the next 20 minutes.
