A couple of weeks ago, Monkey finished her first reader book. It was a classic Dick and Jane story. It was a collection of the first three readers, I think. As a reward, I took her to a toy store to find an inexpensive present. She actually had a few stories left when we bought the item, but the next day she read all of the rest of the stories in the book to get her reward. Normally she stalls, tries to talk about something or fusses when it is time for school. That day she zoomed through the stories with no hesitation.
