Bede wonders if "dragon" really is the first word Lucia has ever read on her own.
Do you remember what your breakthrough word in reading was? I don't remember mine, but for my brother Ulric, it was "treasure" when he was four years old. I was so thrilled that I brought him down to the library to celebrate. He then threw a fit in the children's room, and I realized that just because he could read didn't mean he was ready to hang with the big kids.
