Ayra can read

The first time I heard my 3-year-old read a book, I almost teared up!

"Dat is not my monkey, its feet are to smoof".
(That's not my monkey, its feet are too smooth)

Yes, she can't pronounce some words properly yet, but I was still very impressed!

I hugged her, praised her and asked her to read again and again. She was more than happy to do so. I could tell she was proud of her achievement. Tak sia-sia aku bacakan 20 books almost every day (walau letih and naik muak asyik ulang benda sama)!

Of all the books I bought for my girls, they love this series the most.

Here's a video of Ayra doing some revision - she read her English & Malay books, alif-ba-ta and recited selawat and the first few lines of surah Al-Fatihah (she memorized the whole surah tapi tak nak baca sampai habis. Huhu).

Oh hey, even Raina knows how to "read" too - in her own language! Haha. You might want to turn up the volume to hear what she's reading.

"Qolla qolla qollaaa...".

Priceless :)
