Fake... They told the kid what to say. How sad... That there is such stupid people in this world that would ACTUALLY believe she can actually read it.

Hey Noureddin...just because YOU cant read doesn't mean you need to knock those who can! Not everything in this world is FAKE (except the moon landing).

How do you push a 1 year old to learn??? She's a very intelligent child who has been given the opportunity to flourish with supportive parents.
Hate to tell you this Noureddin...there are exceptionally talented people in this world. This little girl in the video is not the only one.

This isn't fake. My son (now 9) could read like this at this age. He is not a super genius, he just has innate language skills. I read to him from birth while others told me I was stupid because he couldn't understand what I was reading to him. He was not pushed, he had loving, interactive attention based around books for maybe an hour a day but in short sessions. Now my other children can't read like this, and are really nowhere close, despite having the same attention - I guess different people do have different skill sets from birth. All of my kids converse very well however, and a side effect of that is they verbalise their feelings rather than throw tantrums. How nice. I have a friend who pointed out that his amazing parrots spoke so clearly because he spoke to them in a normal voice, rather than the stupid 'polly wants a cracker' schtick that people put on. Oddly enough, I didn't baby-talk to my son either - I respected his mind from the start, rather than treating it like a blob of uncooked dough like so many parents do in our western culture.

My sister could read when she was about 2 years old. I remember how "angry" she got sometimes when she could read a word but not say it, hehe...
Check out this link, if you are curious want to try it with your kid.
My mum used something similar to this:
I don't want you to go and buy it, but it's pretty cool, kids love it, and with a little bit of creativity you can do it yourself at home

gr8 kid, but I fear some modern parents do not realise that sometimes children need to act and be just that, children.
A little of this sort of encouragement is a good thing of course, but I wonder if they have spent way to much time with books smarts ? I mean going on TV and all, makes you wonder just how much of this little girls time is taken up "learing"
I just hope she spends as much time playing in the sandpit, digging up worms, making mud pies in the garden , without the parents stressing out about a bit of a mess on her clothes.
Learning through play is a given, BUT sometimes kids just need to be able to play, if mum and dad can join in, without controlling the situation too much, thats gr8.
I dont wanna hear" she gets all that interaction at daycare"
We have a friends who remind me of this couple
their kid is now 13 and she never seems to smile much.

@JimineyJilickers: Wow. Talking shit, Eh? I can read. You only say that cause its an insult. Pretty much all the time insult are false and just to make fun of the person.
None the less. Its fact. The kid can't read it. I'm sure it took weeks to make this kid act like it can read it. Maybe 3 months or something...
I didn't know people were so stupid as to believe this trash.

I was able to read Hydrogen Peroxide on a bottle and read the newspaper at age 3. My parents have pictures of me when I was included in an advanced learning group.
This is very believable.
Noureddin, please give it a rest, it's real.

Long time watcher/reader, first time poster.
This is real. I saw it live on the morning news last year, and was impressed then as well.
@Noureddin - The Today Show is not fake media, nor fake TV. It is a reputable morning news and talk show that has been around for 50+ years.
And here is the printed news report about the video in this post, along with the original video to watch.

It's called evolution and after a few thousand years things like this are gonna start happening more and more. One every few generations like einstein or motzart who knows they just pop up.
