Bedtime books

Gaëlle is just full of energy and loves to be on the move. But one pleasure we all have is reading books together. She looks forward to her evening stories and loves to be read to. 

Reading has been a real struggle for her. She is impatient and easily gives up when it gets too hard. And it's been hard. However, she wants to read and has made huge improvements this year. I know at times she is discouraged, but she still tries to read to us. I'm so thankful she keeps at it and just LOVES books. 

I have no doubt that she will pick up this skill. She is a very bright little girl but for many reasons, this is taking work for her. But I know the sense of accomplishment she feels when she succeeds is huge and the reward will be so worth all the struggles in the end.
