Overheard

Ryan was reading The Very Busy Spider by Eric Carle (Philomel Books, 1984) to Charlie this morning. I was checking my email in the next room and heard this:

"...'Oink! Oink!' grunted the pig. 'Want to roll in the mud?' The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web...

"...'Woof! Woof!' barked the dog. 'Want to chase a cat? What about throw up in the kitchen or poop in the living room?' The spider didn't answer. She was very busy spinning her web..."

B-a-d puppy.

haha. That's great. I just love the Eric Carle books. I saw one of the original art pages for The Very Hungry Caterpillar at the Eric Carle Museum of Children's Picture Book Art (or something along those lines!) It was hard not to drop a bagillion dollars in the bookstore!
