I am happy to report that Younger Daughter read no less than 2 I Spy books this morning.  She's getting much better about looking at all the letters, too.

Younger Daughter was unexpectedly stymied by this page near the end:

I spy two words that start with the letters GL.

boxing glove



It turned out that she thought "boxing glove" was one word, beginning with the letter "b".

Me:  "Words are separated by spaces.  Every time you see a space, that means a new word is about to begin."

Younger Daughter:  "Really?  Nobody ever explained that to me before."

Sigh.  Anyway, she's making progress, and I plan to keep cranking.  I hope she can start the upcoming school year with a bang instead of a whimper.
