WITH A FIVE YEAR OLD WHAT YOU SEE IS WHAT YOU GET, READ ON.
A Frickin' ElephantJake is 5 and learning to read.
He points at a picture in a zoo book and says ,
"Look Mama! It's a frickin' Elephant !"
Deep breath ... "What did you call it ?"
"It's a frickin' Elephant, Mama!? It says so on the picture!"
and so it does ...
" A f r i c a n? Elephant "
Hooked on phonics!!! Ain't it wonderful?
