Teaching Reading
"Babies are born with the instinct to speak the way spiders are born with the instinct to spin webs. You do not need to train babies to speak ; They just do . But reading is different".
"Many things we need can wait
The child cannot. Now is the time
his bone are formed, his mind
developed to him We cannot
say tomorrow his name is today"
