My little boy loves to help in the kitchen. I am going to try this blog. One day I am praying he can read the recipes himself.

Is your little boy struggling with reading, Laurie, or is he just young? With the right methods of learning and consistent work, even the most struggling learners can have success with reading. Let me know if you have questions or concerns.
