This is actually a funny story... My Mom taught me to read, though she didn't know it at the time. Every night before I went to bed she would read me a book or two. (Usually Little Golden Books -- loved those) Of course I had my favorites, and she was forced to read a few books over and over. She thought I was just memorizing the stories because pretty soon I was correcting her if she "accidently" skipped a page or a word. The first day of kindergarten my teacher gathered the class around her to read us a book. I read the title to her. She also assumed I had the book at home and had memorized it, so she let me sit with her and read the book to the class. Afterward, she made a comment about how that must have been one of my favorite books since I knew every word. I had never seen the book before, and told her as much. She insisted I was lying and called my Mom after class. My Mom also had never heard of the book! Somehow, during all those bedtime stories, I had learned to read!

I was about 3. It was a combination of my teacher, my mum and myself.
