As a child I LOVED my Mum reading to me at bedtime. We always had a long book we were reading, she read a chapter to me every night. I had visions of reading to my DD just like I did with my mum, but it is SO not working out like that.
I have done all the things they recommend - read to her since she was tiny, talked about the pictures, blah blah..
When she was a baby/toddler she always grabbed the book out of my hands, turned the pages before I could finish the sentence, etc.. It drove me mad but I figured it was just what babies/toddlers did. We did get past that stage, but since she could talk she asks a zillion questions about the pictures, what's happening, "why why why"... I thought we would get past that stage too but even now she is 5 she drives me insane with questions while I try to read. I know it is a good thing that she asks questions - it shows she is listening and comprehending and engaging with the text and all that.
But just for once I would like her to sit back and listen to the effing story without constantly interrupting. Is she ever likely to do that? Will it ever twig to her that if she just listens to the story most of her questions will eventually be answered? Do other kids her age do the same thing?
