Suddenly, the twins have discovered singing. Miss Peaches adores one particular song/story that she learned at school from an Eric Carle book. It is a repetitive narrative (aren’t all children’s stories?) about a string of animals and what they see, starting with a baby bear.
“Baby bear, baby bear what do you see? I see a red fox looking at me …” and so on. Miss Peaches can string together about 6-10 animals like this.
Yesterday in the car Mr. Plum decided to join in.
“Baby bear, baby bear, baby bear, baby bear, baby bear,” all at the top of his very big lungs.
“Mr. Plum,” I asked, “what do they ask the baby bear?”
“Oh Mom,” he said, “that’s on the NEXT page.”
