Reading Have You Seen Duck? to Emma (which I LOVE btw!)
Emma: Why is the boy sad?
Me: Because Duck is very special to him. Just like your blanket. How would you feel if you lost your blanket?
E: (Looks like she’s about to cry for a second over the horror of losing her blanket(s)… and then smiles) I would be cold!
Emma: Look mommy (points to one of those “This book belongs to….” labels). It says E-M-M-A. That says Emma.
Me: Oh my god! You can spell your name?! That’s amazing!
Emma: That means the book is mine. Not yours. Don’t touch!
