Starting to read?

It seems Little Bitty can read some words, well sort of read them anyway. When CB and BH were learning the presidents, he saw the placemat they were studying from and said "James!" Sure enough, there are several presidents named James. And of course, he's familiar with that name from Thomas & Friends, lol.

So I decided to do a little non-scientific test. He has a set of Thomas cards with the characters' names and pictures. I covered up the pictures so he could only see the words and asked him, "who's this?" He didn't get them all, but he was able to recognize several of them, including Thomas, James, and Gordon. Well, I think he is actually going off of the first letter, because when I showed him Henry he said Harold ("Hay-oh"). Still, that means he knows which names start with which letters. Pretty cool, just wanted to share :).

Oh, and when he was looking at the presidents, LB also pointed to Grover Cleveland and said "Hatt!" Apparently, he thinks he looks like Sir Topham Hatt from Thomas. What do you think?

Right on the mark! That's too funny.

I think they look amazingly similar. And the fact that LB caught it shows how brilliant he is!
