Hungry for Books

Buster loves to "read" and his memory is pretty good, aided by the illustrations in his books, of course. He'll point at a page with a picture of trees and say, "Let's count them," or ask me questions about the different images. I guess that's fair. I'm always asking him the color or shape of objects, so it must get to be his turn sometimes.

My current favorite is the micro dude's interpretation of The Very Hungry Caterpillar. The caterpillar munches its way through stwawbewwies and wawamewon and a nice gween leaf. And turns into a byoo-ful butterfly.

In unrelated news, we've been getting lots of summer camp flyers from the YMCA and community centers. There are lots of interesting programs, but are there really people who think that kindergarteners need to take public speaking classes? How about woodworking for preschoolers? (Okay, that one wasn't fair - it turned out that the same brochure had classes for adults too.) SwingDaddy was pretty excited about signing up the boys for the "How to tile a bathroom floor" course, but participants have to be 18 for that one.

Good one on how to tile the bathroom floor. How to peel unwanted wall paper will be good too for the kids.

My daughter actually took a woodworking class for preschoolers, called "Mini Carpenters". It was kind of awesome. They made boats and a treasure box and at the end there was a big painting party.

But I would probably draw the line at public speaking. Also welding.

Don't you love it when kids retell stories their own way? :)
