When I was in first grade, our class was divided into 3 reading groups: the Bluejays, Cardinals, and Sparrows. You can guess which group was the best. I began as a Blue jay because I had several books memorized and could zip thru them. I was subsequently demoted to the Cardinals and then to the Sparrows once my teacher figured out that my reading skills were NOT those worthy of the beautiful Bluejay group. Clearly, I'm still a little salty about it. I don't think Fia will follow in my footsteps. This is a little old, but it makes me smile. This past summer she would read me books all the time.
