Preschooler reading "Miseducation: Preschoolers at Risk"

Just for fun, I asked my 4-year-old son to read a paragraph from David Elkind's anti-"academic preschool" polemic, "Miseducation: Preschoolers at Risk." I agree with Elkind about academic preschools, per se, but he is wrong about the benefits that can accrue from early reading. I'm guessing Elkind never expected that paragraph to be read by a 4-year-old. Of course, he doesn't understand what he's reading here, and he strongly prefers that I read to him (not vice-versa) at bedtime, which I do.
