Bassetlover, what a compassionate thing to do!

I just listened to DS1 reading some of The Folk of Faraway Tree (I think he was avoiding getting ready for bed ) and I am just so happy for him. Its not so much the reading, its that he has been reading for a while but was too worried/perfectionistic/embarrassed to read anything but those pathetic readers we borrowed from the library. I am so pleased for him, that he wanted and ASKED to take a risk and read, aloud, from a more challenging book.
