Each character was correctly named and I was tickled that she was so excited to be "reading to me." As she turned the pages, she continued to point to objects and tell me their correct names, "window, apple, chair, magnet..."
Magnet, I thought, not too shabby. This was the first time I'd ever seen the story book and Kate came into the room and informed me that she had found the book on her bookshelves and gave it to Molly the day before because it was about "Mouse" and she knew that Molly would "just love it." Molly was uninterested in Kate's commentary and continued reading to me. "What does Goofy see out his window?" I prompted.
"Da moon," she answered confidently, "wif his telethcope." WOW! It seems the ole Mouse can teach this girl anything!
I'm writing to Disney to see if they can get to work IMMEDIATELY on another book series for Molly: "Higher Math with Mickey!"
It certainly looks like she's up to the challenge!
