Early. 3 or 4. My mother is an elementary school teacher. As she loves to teach reading, she did so with my sister and me :-)
I had a little book called "Ping en de zeester" (about a penguin and a starfish) attached to the bars of my toddler's bed. Yes, it contained words with more than one syllable. I never understood why people need to learn one-syllable words first. If you can read the first syllable, just read the second one and attach them, no?
I love, love, love reading. It makes me introvert on any test where introversion is linked with reading.
