    forth in the car to day care.  Just after he turned four, we took a trip to Florida.  On the way down he could read one word, "exit" and the number.  On the way back he was reading Mad Magazine out loud to us. He had taught himself to read from stringing the sounds together. PHONICS ROCKS!

      I was reading very well just prior to kindergarten. I took it for granted that everyone could read, until I made it into the First Grade.

      Both of my children also learned to read around the age of five.
