There’s LOTS of alphabet books out there, and I do like collecting them. What with teaching kindergarten and all……
Anyway, I bought this one awhile back.
The other day I pulled it out and we were reading it together. Everything was going great until we got to this page:
And we had this dialog, “T is for Elephant……..Why?” Thoughtful silence for a bit, then this one boy wildly raised his hand, “Oh, I KNOW!”
“It’s for “HORNY!!!”
Choking I manage to sputter, “No the sound we are looking for is “T” as in, (turn the page) TRUMPET, elephants TRUMPET with their trunks and anyway, they are called tusks, not horns.”
