The big sis is reading quite fluently in Malay and now is improving on the English language. So, I supply her with lots of phonics stuff.
Looking at her, I see my ownself at her age. I love books. I read all types of books.I guess it is inherited from my father. My father used to buy books in sets for me. Being a government's officer in 70's, I guess it was quite a culture to install the house with sets of books. Children Encyclopedia, Peter & Jane etc. But I always prefer Malay books. Maybe because my dad only bought the books, but never spend time with me to read the books.
I am sure with teh genetic plus environment - my kids would love books more than I am.
