Once upon a time...

In our house, we are used to older girls reading to younger girls (I think that's the main reason Hailey has no real inner drive to learn phonics - not only is it work, but she has Brynna, a voracious reader, as a roommate who will read her anything she wants). We've had girls reading to their baby dolls, even.

But last night was a new one for us.
This is Lauryn reading to her hungry, hungry hippos. Not only that, but even though she is holding an Usborne book of fairy tales, she is "reading" them the story of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. I didn't realize she had it so memorized that she didn't even need the pictures to prompt her.

And I guess it is an appropriate story for the hungry hippos. :-)

And just WHY doesn't she have the Usborne Fairy Tales book memorized???? ;-) OK, I guess I'll concede that the Hungry Caterpillar is appropriate for Hungry Hippos. LOL
