We are learning about Transportation now, and my bookshelf is full of books about trains, planes, buses, boats, and cars. Of course we have a Donald Crews shelf — with Truck, Freight Train, and Sail Away on it.
Princess finished her journal page this morning, then took Freight Train off the shelf and brought it to me.
“Teacher, what does this say?”
“Freight Train,” I told her.
“fff,” she said, pointing to the letter F.
“Yes, that’s right, that’s the word Freight. Freight starts with F.”
“Duh, duh, duh, ” she said, pointing to the D.
“Yup, that’s D. D is for Donald. Donald Crews wrote the words and he drew the pictures. And you know something else about Donald Crews?” I asked.
“He has brown skin, just like you do.”
“I LOVE this book!” she yelled, and clutched it to her chest.
