It’s so fun to watch a beginning reader that is so literal start to read everything in sight.  Josiah has become a pretty good reader, which really increases the number of entertainment options for him when we’re traveling.  But it also provides some great entertainment for us as we get a window into his 5-year-old understanding of the world.

Seeing a ‘No Loitering’ sign, he declared, “Hey, that’s NOT how you spell ‘Littering.’  

As our son quietly read the label on a sparkling juice bottle, ‘Alcohol free’, he suddenly exclaimed, “Hey, this says it’s FREE!”  

“Daddy… it says ‘Littering 300 fine’.  Littering is FINE!”
