So, I went in to get my four year old son up from "Quiet Rest" time.  (Now in fairness, he is four and a half)  He had taken his book, The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe with him to rest with. When I came in the room he was holding up his book, "reading" and looking at the pictures (so I thought.)  He told me, "Well, I've been reading a lot of this book, but I'm only going to read two chapters."  Now, I now that he can read quite well, but this shocks me.  So I look, and he's at about page 21 or so, which is in the middle of the second chapter.  I ask him, "Did you read all this?"
"Yeah."  So, he proceeds to read me a few more lines, and as Emma bounces into the room, Caleb declares, "I can read this book."
