Reader...or not

When we were told by all the social workers, teachers, and therapists about little girl everyone said how much she likes to read. To date, the only time she has ever come close to reading is when we read a story from her princess book before bed. We don’t even do that very often anymore.
It seems that now that she has a DS, Wii, and tons of other things to play with that she doesn’t care to read anymore. It makes me sad because she has so many great books that our family and friends have bought her because we were told she was an avid reader. There have been several times in the past month that she’s come to me whining about being board and I let her know that she’s got tons of books in her room to read, but that’s the last thing she wants to do. Ugh. It’s a bit disheartening, but I guess when you’re not used to having things and books are something special it’s a wonderful way to pass the time. And now, when you have so much, books aren’t that great. Bummer.

I bet she will come back to reading. Once the novelty of all these new great toys has worn off. Also if anyone you know has a kindle or itouch she can read books electronically on them and that might be fun for her.
