Near the Arts Centre in Christchurch is a series of sculptures on the theme of dyslexia. One shows a small girl reading a book, with the words flowing off and around the garden (cut into a bronze banner). Trouble is, they are reproduced jammed tightly together so are very difficult to read. Dyslexia, remember?
My niece saw the statue and made a beeline for it. I guessed what might happen and positioned myself so I could get a shot. Sure enough, she put her arm around the little girl and started reading to her. Well, sort of reading. She wasn;t axctually talking at that stage, so they just sounded a bit like real words. Good tone and inflection though.
