    When my nieces were very young, they could do that. I tried opening the book to a random page, and starting from there. That did not go over well. They were quite indignant about it. And, couldn’t pick up the story. Their mother thought they were reading, but not so.

    You missed the buildup they were confused.

    My kids used to do this to me regularly. If I said a word wrong or missed a page, they would be sure to tell me about it.

    I’ve read Green Eggs and Ham so many times, that I can recite the entire book without opening it. Both of my kids loved hearing it read, and I love the book.

    If Nerwin has memorized the story, then it’s time for a new one…

    Both of my daughters had their favorite book. I didn’t mind. I loved reading to them.

    Used to read bedtimes stories to the grandchildren when young and then watch some of a movie before they fell asleep. Great memories.

    I would read to my son and he would look at the pages. After a while he was reciting along with me from memory. Then one day at about the age of four, he started stumbling over some of the words—especially the ones with “ough” in them—and I realized he was learning, on his own, to read.

    I was tutoring this kid who was undergoing brain surgery and had to live in foster care away from his parents. This kid loved any Diary of a Wimpy Kid … which I hated. Turns out he was not learning to read, but memorizing everything. In one year, he made no progress. Regardless, he was a really sweet and lovable kid …. just needed to learn to read. He was 10.

    Same story. Same beddy-bye time. Every night. Forever.

    I could memorize it, too, under those circumstances!

    Be strong, Little Green Auntie!
