I can’t get over how much information I learned from School House Rock. And, conversely, how kids don’t have exposure to this kind of educational material. In part because it’s not made anymore, but also because we TiVo everything, so there’s no interstitials. I’d love to be able to insert some of these into their shows that they like.
Interjection has got to be one of the best of the bunch (I have a top ten which is very different from the Best of CD that came out–where’s Verb?). We were listening to this CD in the car the other day trying to get them excited about the songs (which definitely work better with the videos). But since Clark’s story has an interjection, this was the obvious choice.
Relive the glory:
Darn. That’s the end.
[CREATED: June 2012] The Book of Hi’s
Today is Clark’s 7th birthday! Happy birthday, sweetheart!
I have told my kids that if they tell me stories, I will make them into books for them. I even have a digital recorder if they want to recite stories that we can make together. They are always coming up with stories that their toys play (mostly about jail and monsters and whatnot), but they don’t seem to want to record them for posterity.
Then one day Sarah and the kids were doing a craft that involved writing out stories (Sarah had stapled pages together). Clark wrote this story. And it cracks me up, primarily because I know he thinks it is very funny, but also because it is weirdly funny (if ever there was a kid who was almost ready for Monty Python, it’s this one).
He wrote it out very fast on one page of the book, so I decided to make a proper book out of it. For your enjoyment, I present, in full, The Book of Hi’s.
