MaiaÂ sings the ABCs the way she sings many songs--she gets the song right, but makes up a few letters/words along the way. This weekend we played a game where I sang the ABCs but stopped at different places for her to fill in, which she did loudly and with glee.
We have three ABC books:
The first is Dr. Seuss's ABC, which we've had since Maia was a baby and which I think is just the greatest. How oftenÂ do you get to say, "Oscar's only ostrich oiled an orange oil today?"Â She used to want to read it all the time, but not as much anymore.
The second is Alphabeasts by Wallace Edwards which has fun and clever illustrations.
And the third is herÂ Crocodile Creek Kid's WorldÂ ABC block book, which was a gift from her grandmother and is her new favorite.
We had a funny conversation recently when we got to the S is for Snail page.
MAIA - I'd like to be a snail someday, Mama. I grow up a snail.
ME - You like snails?
MAIA - Yeah. And I like snakes!
