We have this nifty book where pictures of animals slide back and forth to show the letter it starts with, then the name of the animal.
The other day, JBird decided to take it upon herself to spell out the names of the animals.
Ya know, what you do at 3.5 years old
Here’s what it sounded like:
A is for alligator. A-L-L-I-G-A-T-O-R. Alligator.
B is for bear. B-E-A-R. Bear.
So on and so forth.
Clever girl that she is, when she gets to Penguin she looks at the picture and says:
“P is for Whale Bird. P-E-N-G-U-I-N. Whale Bird”
Mental gears turning
“Wa-wa-wa Whale Bird.”
(To no one in particular) “OH!! Haha! Penguin! Penguin starts with P!”
I went over to look at the picture once she had set down the book.
Yea, Whale Bird. I see it. Keen observation JBird.
