I'm another one who can't remember ever not reading. I don't think either of my parents really ever read to me, although they were big readers. My house was always full of books--on shelves, on tables, stacked in piles on the floor...they were just a part of life. I do remember that on my second day of Kindergarten the teacher was reading a book to us, and skipped some words on a page. I corrected her, and read the page back to her as it should have been read. That was my last day in Kindergarten--my parents were called, and I was moved into first grade the next day. Now schools recommend a child for special education if they can't at least recognize a few words in Kindergarten...how far we've come in 40 years!
