Children Without TV #38 Heroes in Literature

Jane Yolan and Mark Teague tell how dinosaur gets well soon.

Jane Yolan and Mark Teague tell how dinosaur
gets well soon.

Three year old saw it
once; heard it once; kept the rhyme!
THINK: make a big stink

Today on Face Time, Oliver reminded me that his Mom had the flu. And that the dinosaur doesn’t make a “big stink.” This is a timely phenomena since he is navigating from diapers to using the toilet.
So he memorized the phrase from Yolan’s book: “Does he make a big stink? Is that what you think?” Every time he quotes the book, his family applauds for the young poet. All the acknowledgment is just more encouragement. His favorite at 2 was “poop poop toot toot”!

Is a twig enough?

Snowshoes claim the top of the hill in triumph!

Snowshoes claim the top of the hill in triumph!

Nigerian poet, Ben Okri tells us:
“Literature always comes from a specific place, but it lives in its own unique kingdom

Woodland kingdom guards
explorers; spawns her young shoots
from her nourished roots.
