Childhood Reading at Three

Mom: Ok, girls, you can read for a little while and then I’ll come back and turn out the light.
3 y.o.: Mommy! Mommy! (sotto voce, molto nervoso) I can’t read.
Mom: That’s ok, baby, just look at the pictures.
3 y.o.: (happy again) Ok, mommy.

Childhood reading at 17:

"You can read for a while. I'm going to bed. Don't forget to turn out the lights when you go to sleep."

Sounds exactly right.

Did you see the Woolf on Hemingway essay in the new book "The Story About The Story"?
