here are some shouting pictures of shouty things she says:

This is Asher's favorite book. We had checked it out from the library, but I knew it had to be added to our personal collection the evening I was preparing dinner and Kaia & Asher were quoting the book to each other from memory!

Awesome! Ran into this one in Access Services to be repaired. It made me laugh out loud and reminded me of how strange and new the world is when you are young (well, actually it still is strange and new).

What really makes this book is listening to a five year old "read" it from memory. Simple drama of conquering fear of the slide.
