There’s more than just cooking going on in the kitchen. We’re reading, too.
This is what lil’ Huck was up to while I was getting breakfast on the table: One Hundred Hungry Ants by Elinor J. Pinczes.
We pretended the beans were ants. Get it? The dish towel with the banana and peach? That’s the picnic blanket. That’s where the ants are headed, first in one row of 100, then two rows of 50, etc.
Of course, we started with 10 to get the concept going before we went for it with the full 100.
Huck is way into numbers. He is always asking me to count to 1000 with him, sometimes to infinity. We usually count to 100 instead.
I know: slacker mom.
