My 2 year old is enthused with books. Just like her siblings. The issue is that she’s not as careful as she could be with them, as in she eats them half the time. I try and put educational/themed books for the holidays or whatever in the bathroom for when the kids need to ‘sit and think’ a while. One of the books I put in for our polar unit study was a polar bear zoo book that has skunks on the other side (no idea why they paired those 2 up).. but anyway, she was POSITIVE that the skunks were cows, as she was holding the book upside down, she exclaimed MOO COW!
No, dear, those are stinky skunks. Yucky. Phew.
So what does she do? Lifts the book and ‘sniff sniff’…. sorry, dear, you can’t actually SMELL the skunks in the book, you wouldn’t want to!
