I had a subscription to Twinkle magazine which i read from cover to cover but I don't remember the process of learning to read.
I remember writing stories at primary shcool. When I was nine we lived in Belgium for a year for my dad's work and I wrote and illustrated a book, probably because I didn't speak Flemish therefore couldn't watch TV. it was lost during the move back to Scotland and i can't even remember what it was about.
My teachers and parents would have been my first readers.
