Tastes like chicken

On a walk to the local library for preschool storytime, we saw a robin.  D., who speaks very little English and has some special needs to boot, pointed, and said, “chicken!”

At first I told him it was a robin, and then decided to simplify, so I taught him the word “bird.”

Then today when the principal got on the intercom to announce the lunch menu, D. pointed at the speaker and said, excitedly, “he say chicken!”

One word down, several thousand to go.
