    How about reading one book in English and also its Spanish copy instead? That’s what John H. Groberg in “The Other Side of Heaven” did with his English and Tongan Bibles in order to understand Tongan.

    Sadly, reading is not an ‘ordinary skill’

    It’s sad that reading isn’t a talent. My daughter tells me about some classmates in her 3rd grade class who don’t read very well. As for Gracie, maybe she could read a powerful poem and act it out.

    They might still have a chance. Let me tell you about my buddy who graduated from a public high school not knowing how to read. It didn’t turn out well for him.

    My parents, especially my dad really looked down on reading, equating it with sloth. Newspapers really irked him as they reminded him of bums who would drape their bodies in them to keep warm. But I couldn’t help that, I had three paper routes.

    You don’t even need to act it out, just recite it.

    And who says you have to wait for a talent show?l I used to freak out my classmates by holding books upside down to read in class, and that was in 9th grade!

    Ticked the teacher off to no end, one day she even gave me detention for reading the text book, in the English lit. class instead of “putting my head flat on my desk”.

    People who don’t read well or can’t read at all,tend to disdain reading altogether,and look down on those who do read well and do so as much for leisure as for necessity. They are embarrassed because of their shortcoming,and rather than admit to and remedy it,they muddle through with tricks,or and spread their disdain of that necessary skill to others,not realizing it’s importance in everyday life. Equating reading with sloth,as your dad did was just a sad cop-out. Glad you didn’t buy into that.
