My first book at an extremely young age was an alphabet book made of cloth so it was not easy to tear. I can just remember it, some time before I started school.

When I started school I am told that I could write my name and enough of my address to be able to find the house.

The Ladybird books and "The Water Babies - Kingsley"

I don't really know in my case as I was reading from the age of four - in fact I was given dispensation at my local library to obtain a borrower's ticket as the starting age was five.

As it was war time, it would probably have been difficult to obtain books any other way in quantity as I managed a book a day on average.

Many years later my parents told me I could also tell the time at that early age.

oh, the Ladybird books, Topsy and Tim, Pookie the Rabbit With Wings and one about a forest, the name of which I can't remember. Loved them. I could read before I went to school, too.

Yes I also was reading before I went to school. What I want to know is why can't youngsters leaving school read at all.

Not a clue I'm afraid but I do have fond memories of reading the Ladybird books at primary school.

The earliest that I can remember where the Little Nemo cartoon strips by Winsor McCay at around 2-3 years old, then R.L.Stevensons 'A Childs' Garden of Verses'.

Is there something wrong here?

I didn't initiate this thread, in fact my reply was quite a way down from previous contributors. I notice also that my post is now dated Fri, 27/04/[email protected]:36 when, in fact I posted this afternoon and, even though I am usually up and around at that hour, I'm not on line then.

This thread is now locked and can not be replied to.
