Daliyah Arana Is Only 4 Years Old And She’s Already Read Over 1,000 Books!

By  | 

Daliyah Library of Congress Daliyah Marie Arana began reading at 2 years and 11 months- now at 4-years-old, she’s already read more books than a good bit of adults!

Daliyah’s love of books are the reason she ended up at the Library of Congress and her mother, Haleema Arana, says that love came from being read to since she was in the womb and only grew as her daughter did. “She wanted to take over and do the reading on her own,” Haleema told The Washington Post in an interview. “It kind of took off from there. The more words she learned, the more she wanted to read.”

Daliyah’s penchant for literature caught the attention of the 14th Librarian of Congress, Carla Hayden, who invited the tiny reader to shadow her as “librarian for the day.”

Even Reading Rainbow was impressed!

Daliyah previously told the Gainesville Times that she hopes to be able to help other young kids learn how to read as well. “I like to check out books every day,” the 4-year-old said. “And I want to teach other kids to read at an early age, too.”

  • Querida Daliyah,
    Si esa frenética capacida lectora también incluye el libro digital (a fin de cuentas es el formato que leerán nuestros hijos en el futuro) permíteme ofrecerte un Best Seller del Camino de Santiago que triunfa aquí en España… sí en Amazon España aunque algunos piensen que por estos lares ni se lee o lo que se lee se piratea. “La morada de Dios” http://goo.gl/mak00k
