Q.

Reading

Doc, my son cannot yet read, but when he gets a story book, he will narate a story from creche or the one that i have read to him as if he is reading from that book. Is this normal? He is now 5yrs old.

Your 5 year old is obviously a very bright little boy with well above average mental ability. He is capable of remembering every word of a book if he only hears the story read to him once.He certainly is going to do well once he starts school.
