Books for Christmas redux
Last year, after filming their 3-year-old son showing disgust at receiving books for Christmas (and the parents laughing), and presumably after users of Youtube attached critical comments to the video and the parents turned off commenting on the video… the kid is back!Yesterday, the parents filmed their now 4-year-old son receiving books for Christmas. Ta-da!
My take is, based on the questioning of the parents, that the video was shot in response to Internet critics. I hope we’re seeing a genuine response from the boy, and not the result of coaching, but anyhow…
For our part, our daughter received two Mary Poppins books, The World of Little House (she’s re-reading the series for school now), and Ramona the Pest. She was most enthused about Ramona because I’ve been stalling her reading our softcover version for weeks because I’d picked up a large format hardcover edition (25 cents at a yard sale) and set it aside from Christmas.
