colbys getting really good at reading. i'm using "teach your child to read in 100 easy lessons" and we're on lesson 68.
at the end of the lesson theres a very short story to read and a picture that goes with it.
the story today was called 'finding some fun on the moon'.
we read the story and as he reads i ask him comprehensive questions to make sure he understands what he's reading.
so this girl goes to the moon and meets a moon cow who takes her swimming. (don't ask questions, becuause i dont get it either). the last sentence of the story is 'the girl did not tell the other girls that she went swimming with a moon cow.'
i asked colby why he thought she didnt tell her friends.
i was expecting something like, 'becuase she wanted the pool all to herself,' or 'she didnt want anyone else to be friends with the cow.'
i personally would have said, 'because if i told my friends i went swimming on the moon with a space cow, i'd be commited.'
however colbys answer was, "because they would kill him for meat."
guess the moons not so much fun for the cows.
