What Ellie's Reading: Barbie edition

Hey everybody!

Remember the boring ol' post I did yesterday about reading? Well, today's is MUCH cooler! You see, today, I get to share with the world that Ellie can read!!!

Below, Ellie reads a Barbie book to you (and then plays a little piano). At first you'll think, "She just has it memorized" which is partly true. She has read this book many-a-times. However, you'll see that she looks at the words and figures them out, or looks at each word as she says it.

And to further prove my point, tomorrow on the blog will be a NEW, NEVER READ BEFORE book that she will read on camera. So, stay tuned for that!

Without further adieu I present Ellie, the reader. Oh, one more thing... you can hear Bella (the puppy) throughout... sorry!

Talk to you soon,

P.S. If you don't have time to watch all six minutes, skip to the end for her cute bow.


  1. Oh Dale, she is so cute! You are going to have your hands full when she gets older. You can hope that she is as sweet a daughter ans Melissa is. I enjoy your blog and love your photos. Glenna Gallagher

  2. Okay...I've always just followed your blog and admired your pictures, but I HAD to cute is that?! She is precious! I am an elementary teacher so I love to hear kiddos read! She is totally on her way to being a proficient reader! She's looking at the pictures for visual clues and that's what good readers do! So cute! Keep her in books! :)

  3. Looks to me like I am really going to have to add more materials to my language shelf!! Way to go, Ellie!!
