They say the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree, well in this case it is the Nana and Mama tree as my eldest has certainly developed the “non stop talking” gene that is prevalent on both sides of my family.
He is definitely a talker, a reader and a thinker. He reads street signs, signs on cars and trucks, advertising signs, everything that has any letters! He loves to read and to read out aloud. We just bought the 26th Story Treehouse and he finished it in just over a day. He is a real book worm and it is funny as I was the same at his age.
With this active mind comes an active mouth and after discussions with his class teacher, I wanted to investigate ways to help keep him stimulated but in a way that didn’t distract his other class mates.
