Each day part of the plan is that Joanna goes through one book a week with Victoria. here's Joanna modelling how to say a particular word. Victoria observes intently when she has to learn how to say a word - it's fascinating to see her process the new information and attempt to repeat the sound. A game we just started this week is the two-person rhyme which begins 'rat tat tat, who is that, only grandma's pussy cat' . I've always done this with my other children but the effort Victoria makes in order to play this (though her memory is at least equal to theirs which surprises me) is amazing to observe. What a tenacious little person! I wonder what she will do for the KINGDOM with such tenacity!
