Lions at Lunchtime

>> Wednesday, December 27, 2006

Jo and I just finished this one. She LOVES the Magic Tree House books and we are slowly working our way through the series. I won't read them to her more than once (Mean Mommy) but she has the audios too so she can listen to them over and over again. In fact, it's shortly after we started getting her audiobooks (and she started listening to them for a couple of hours every night after she went to bed) that she started the odd practice of narrating herself. Sometimes it's simple, like her scooping chopped spinach into a pan and saying, "She carefully scraped the spinach into the pot." Sometimes it's a bit more odd - like saying something to me and then, as she turns away, murmuring, "She said to her mother. . ."
Anyway, Jo reports that Lions at Lunchtime is a good book and her favorite part is when Jack and Annie eat peanut butter and honey sandwiches with the Masai warrior. I wonder if that's because she likes peanut butter and honey sandwiches herself?
