When Anderson slept over on Friday night, we read a bedtime story on my Kindle. He said he didn’t know we could read books on the Kindle (tablet) so I showed him all the kid books I had downloaded to his Kindle Fire. We picked one called Diego Dilemma and the Cookie Conundrum. It’s a cute story but I would recommend that the author go back and use kid language. The sentence structure and a lot of the vocabulary are way above the 5 year age recommendation of the book.
In the story, the little boy, Diego, loves cookies but can only eat them when he earns them. He earns them by eating vegetables and by being a good boy. One day he decides to eat all the cookies without permission and, just like his dad warned, he turned into a cookie!
So now, Anderson keeps asking if he is going to turn into a cookie. Last night he asked if he was going to turn into a candy cane and this morning, after his second granola bar, he asked if he was going to turn into a granola bar!
Ah! The power of the written word!
