  • Retro: Jacob Reads His Favorite Books 2000

    2015 - 09.08

    In honor of Jacob’s upcoming 18th birthday in November 2015, I wanted to remind him of his humble roots. I found these audio files I made in 2000 of him reading me some of his favorite stories mixed with pictures of the book; The Very Noisy Night and The Big Wide Mouthed Frog. Jacob taught himself to read when he was 2, and he would read anything he could get his hands on. We originally thought he was just memorizing the stories, but we tested that theory. We would hand him a book and he would open it to a random page and start reading. He would follow along with his finger and correct himself if he missed a word. He would correct us if we were reading to him and tried to skip a page. It was creepy and cool to watch, so I knew I had to record it, and put it here on the blog for posterity. Click below to listen to Jacob read his favorite stories in his adorable little 2 year old voice.
