Alex Reading

I have been meaning to post this video of Alex reading for some time now. Okay, obviously, he's not really reading. He memorizes books and then he pretends to read them -- with lots of expression, and turning the pages in all the right places. It's very cute. We received this book in a package from my mom last fall, "The Berenstein Bears and the Great Road Race." I read it to him about six times the first day. The next morning, I noticed that he already had it almost completely memorized. A few days later, Rusty took this video. Alex recites almost word for word what is in the book. Pretty impressive for a 3-year-old!

  1. It was almost like having Alex sitting right there on the couch with us:) Thanks for sharing that!
    Love you, Mom

  2. What a wonderful way to start my morning! Thanks for the smiles. That's a precious, priceless video. Well done, Alex!

  3. Well, I guess Grandma hit the nail on the head with this book. I'm thinking you have more interest in race cars in the future--and books too!

  4. Laura,
    That was great! I can hear your voice in his little head!
