All by herself!
This book is pretty good for an early reader. I'm just always cautious of how many books imply that the moon is out at night to contrast the sun is out during the day.

Jennifer Armstrong learned to read and write in Switzerland, in a small school for English speaking children on the shores of Lake Zurich. The school library had no librarian and no catalog – just shelves of interesting books. She selected books on her own, read what she could, and made up the rest. It was perfect.
