  Billy's Answer

Since I don't have any children, I'm probably the wrong person to be answering this question. Nevertheless, here are my two cents on the question. It all depends on the child's intellect. Some children learn before entering pre-school, and then others learn in kindergarten. There are other factors in play here, such as the parents wanting to teach their children how to read and the children wanting to learn. Trust me - not every child likes to read. Back during my school days, I was the 'only' kid who read beyond the curriculum.

  1. There is no one answer because all kids make progress at different rates. Making sure they have access to books and reading TO them is the most important thing.

  2. I don't think a number is the answer here. Children should start reading when they feel up to it

    At the school where I work there are kids in Kindergarten that WANT to read and children in 1st Grade that don't want to start reading at all...

    Every child should start reading when they feel up to it :)

    1. Every child is different. It's the same thing with adults, some love to read and others don't.

  3. I guess I interpreted this question differently. I was thinking more of when should a child become a "reader." Which totally gave me a different answer to the question!

  4. I think as long as books are made accessible to children that's the main thing. That way they can choose to pick them up if they want to.

  5. I don't think there is a right answer to this question. But sharing books with kids as young as possible can't hurt their chances of becoming readers....however it also doesn't guarantee it.


I adore reading reader feedback! I will, however, remove all spam and pointless comments.
