With a five year-old, what you see is what you get. Read on….
Jake is 5 and learning to read. He points at a picture in a zoo book and says, ‘”Look, mama. It’s a frickin’ elephant.”
His mother, after taking a deep breath: “What did you call it?”
“It’s a frickin’ elephant, Mama. It says so on the picture.”
And so it does.
It says, “African Elephant.”
Hooked on phonics!
Ain’t it wonderful?
