eliz_1Remember Elizabeth Barrett? She was 17-months-old when the Today Show introduced her to America a year ago. Why was she special? She could read. Elizabeth read her first word – corn – at 13-months-old. Pretty amazing stuff.

  1. She’s really amazing. I cant’ imagine a toddler reading a newspaper and knows the state capitols. LOL :) Her parents did a great job!
