This week is the launch of the 2012 Readathon #readforgood! If you haven’t already signed up to join in and read the free books with your child, you can find out how here @MeMeTales.

D noticed that Donkey starts with the same letter as his name. We spent some time thinking of other D words. He also wrote D with his fingers and sticks on every surface he encountered, including his applesauce and the bubbles in his bath. He sounded a few cvc words starting with D: Dog, Dig, Dud.
