A wonderful thing happened this week.

My son, who has not been that enthusiastic about reading at all, and who I started this blog and this exploration of literacy for, came home from school and demanded to be allowed to read his reading book.

What’s more, he pestered us until we gave in to him, because he was so excited about reading the story he had picked, he could not wait to share it with us.

And, when he sat down with his dad to read it, he turned to Jason and said: ‘This is fantastic. Reading is SOO exciting.’

We were absolutely chuffed to nuts.

It is working.

We are so proud of him.

Well done Oscar!
