Today, ReiHi-cHan is 1 years and 5 months old *alhamdulillah*.
She is such a remarkable toddler and loves to read book.
If you give her to choose between toys or books; with no doubt, she will choose a book as her companion.
She rather burst out crying if she could not has a book.
In her live, she just crying for 2 things; books and food!
Nowadays, she just loved a one-to-one conversation with me, telling me about herself, her activities, her thought or most of the time, makes jokes!
She is the one whom loved to be pampered and hugs. Her smiling face always brighten up my day.
My dearly ReiHi-cHan, mama love you!
p/s: she had started her first independent reading; Keywords with Ladybird – Book 1a: Peter and Jane

KiruaMi-cHan is a big bro in our family.
He loves to help me in everything; wash laundry, playing & teaching ReiHi-cHan, sings for YunaFi-cHan, become my health advisor plus more and more to write on.
As time goes by, I could not believe myself that; small cuddly little boy once always be by my side now had grown so fast and I can’t bear to watch him alone without me.
He kept me craving for more to enhance myself in educating him.
Our favorite show is “Top Gear”, every Sunday, 3 pm at NTV7.
In my past, I know nothing about car or frankly speaking as a prime transportation, however I know more than a mechanic himself.
All because of KiruaMi-cHan’s passion.
He rather waited for me to explain about the inner & outside part, history, science behind the invention, a biography of the first inventor, future method and more!
He is the one whom so lovable and always showered me with sweet words. He is my sword.
Love you KiruaMi-cHan!
p/s: he is now reading his 4th books; Keywords with Ladybird – Book 2a: Peter and Jane

Alhamdulillah, starting from today, my 3 years and 3 months old toddler; KiruaMi-cHan is an independent reader! *yeay*
His second book is; Book 1b – Peter and Jane. Subhanallah, I am truly amazed!
Last night, he could hardly wait to read the Book 1b by his own.
He managed to read and kept saying “I love to read book, mama” & “Mama, I want to read all night long”
He finished 30 pages by his own! *Oh God, thank you for such a lovely moment for both of us*
After his reading time, he willing to teach his little sister; ReiHi-cHan.
She looked so happy by having his brother as a mentor.
Oh yes, today I would like to share something
Here are a few things that you can do to help build your child’s literacy skills:
- Encourage your children to join in while you read.Pause to let them fill in a rhyming word or repeating line: I’ll huff and I’l puff . . .!
- Ask open-ended questions, such as What do you think is going to happen next? or Why do you think he did that?
- Move your finger under the words as you read aloud. This helps toddlers connect printed words to spoken words.
- Begin teaching the letters of the alphabet, starting with those in your child’s name. Make letter-learning fun with markers, magnets, glue, and glitter.
Try introducing the following types of books to your child:
- Knowledge book (encyclopedia, maps)
- Pattern books with rhymes and repetition
- Simple stories with predictable plots
- Concept books, such as counting and A-B-C books
So mommies, best of luck. And remember; reading is FUN!
