I have been inspired!

So every morning this entire week, I have seen the same infomercial: Your baby can read. And when I say I've seen it every morning, I really do mean that...every morning. Babies...yes babies...are learning to read. They even showed a 3 year old girl reading out of Charlotte's web. I mean wow. So I decided to venture onto their website. So here's how it works...the child sees the word>child sees the word and hears the word>the child sees the word, hears the word, and sees the action at the same time>the child says the word. The program is designed for children from 3 months old to 5 years old. The all around message is that you do not have to wait for your child to be in kindergarten before beginning to learn how to read. Sounds simple enough. The program consists of interactive DVDs that your child watches. It also comes with flash cards. They even make it sweeter by giving you a 30 day risk free trial for 30 days and includes free gifts!

Ok so of course I want this system. But no fancy DVDs and flash cards for us. I've actually been working on a picture ABC book for him that includes real pictures of things that he takes himself. Now i'm also making my own flash cards.
I'll keep y'all updated on our progress and even post some pictures of what i've done so far.
I hope more of you will get inspired too. Please comment and share your ideas too!
