Being the Continuing Adventures of a Woman and her Trusty Kayak in New York Harbor, the Hudson River, and Beyond.
(with occasional political rants just to keep things lively!)
Hilarious. I used to give books for presents when I was a kid. I think my friends and cousins ran the other way. Think books were never a popular present--have to ask
What a spoiled child... He obviously doesn't realize how lucky he is to get books for Christmas...
I honestly think that if I had thrown a fit like that while opening gifts on Christmas, I would have been sent to my room for an hour or so. I liked getting books though.
Yikes!Didn't these parents know they were supposed to get him an iPad?What is wrong with parents today?Did I already say, "Yikes" ?
But they already got him a Wii!
One of Gerald's first words spoken was "book".
Hi Bonnie, best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
I couldn't help but notice that there was an already opened Wii next to this young lad; that's tough competition for a book! Being retired, but too young to do nothing, I became a volunteer at an elementary school this year. For two hours a day, three days a week, I read to kids or they read to me. The reaction of the child in this video is not like anything I have encountered from struggling readers anxious to improve. Last week, my wife and I read "How The Grinch Stole Christmas" to an assembly of kindergartners, first graders, and second graders, and although we were not that good, you could have heard a pin drop during the pauses. What a great audience! I think your job is safe.Merry Christmas!
No BB gun?
Ha! I had failed to notice the Wii entirely - entirely focused on the children's book drama.No BB gun. He'll shoot his eye out, you know! Ol' P, thanks for a good counter-story! Happy Holidays All!
while they might not be quite as excited about books as they are with Lego toys, all 3 of my boys really enjoy books.my almost 10-yr old son reads constantly - he re-reads some of his favorite books multiple times (Harry Potter, Percy Jackson, etc). my 6 yr old (1st grade) is reading much better now on his own, and my 2 yr old always want to jump on my lap and read him some of his favorite books (usually something with tractors!).cheers, and Merry Christmas!my2fish
When I was kid, books were chiseled in stone - and we liked it!A lump of coal could keep us warm - so we liked it!Toys? A stick, a river stone - and we liked it!Give this kid some rat jerky. (Even though we liked that too!)
Rat Jerky? We had to walk 5 miles to get rat jerky. In bare feet. In the snow (which by the way is apparently coming with a vengeance toward the east coast). My favorite book was Lazy Tommy Pumpkinhead. Entertaining and taught a good lesson at the same time.
