I do remember thinking that my efforts were pointless, that I was doing something wrong (by that I mean I wasn't doing things properly, not that it was a mistake to read to her), or that my daughter wouldn't get anything out if it, but time has proved me wrong on this one...so even now, when I see her acting as if she weren't paying any attention whatsoever, I keep reading as much as I can because I know it might not look like it, but sooner than I expect she'll be using those words, and I'll be surprised she remembers them from that day in which I read that story. It's a pretty awesome and rewarding feeling!
Marisa, thank you for sharing your experience. You make such an important point here:
Yes, persistence in reading aloud does pay off--and it pays off far more than we expect--even when children don't seem as focused on the activity as we might like.
I'm happy to hear that you and your daughter are continuing to do so well on your multilingual journey together.
