Dear Boy 'reads' Dig, Dig Digging


Yeah, this is probably a four minute brag-fest but I am continually astounded by my boy's feats of memory and speech. He'll be two and a half years old in a few weeks and here he is reciting 11 four-line stanzas, almost word perfect.

He's had these books for quite a while and we've read them to him multiple times. I wasn't a huge fan of their weird rhyming and onamatopoetic scheme. It felt so clunky and odd the first few times round - so clunky I would skip the two middle lines of each stanza and zip through the book and on to something else. But gradually, slowly, slowly, they've wormed their way into my mind. And now the poetry rolls off all our tongues.
