It´s not actually reading, she is recognizing the words grouped together as a picture. She recognized the word elevator because every time we saw an elevator, I would say ¨Look Zoe, elevator!¨...like every toddler she loves elevators. So, now, without having to see an actual elevator, she can see assume the word that is always near or over the elevators is, elevator.
So excited about this discovery, we got home I made up a game for her to learn how to recognize more words, without flashcards. I used my handy Melissa & Doug Alphabet Magnets and put up a couple of words for her to learn. Yes, House and Music had to go together...it was not an accident.
