Learning To Read

My four-year old Grandson is learning to read.

Yesterday he pointed at a picture in a zoo book and said, 'Look Grandpa! It's a frickin' elephant!'

I took a deep breath, and then asked...'What did you call it?'

'It's a frickin' elephant, Grandpa! It says so on the picture!'

and so it does...

'A f r i c a n Elephant'

So much said about phonetics.

Thanks, Mom
