As a mother of two children, my children are a constant source of joy to me. There was one moment recently when I have not been prouder of my daughter. No it was not when she swam her best time at a swim meet, or when she qualified to compete in a band competition, it was when her reading level went so high most adult books are below her reading level.
Let me explain. My daughter struggled in school from Kindergarten on. She had to work hard to keep from being left behind, but she kept reading. Over time she developed a love of reading and just read and read for fun. That is what did it. She now is a confirmed reader and I am SO proud of her.
