Every Letter Makes a Sound


Evan is the luckiest kid around. He has the best set of alphabet refrigerator magnets ever, the Fridge Phonics&trade Magnetic Set.

Nobody goes hungry for learning with this set of 26 colorful, easy-grip magnetic letters and magnetic letter reader that attaches securely to your fridge. Each letter talks, sings and teaches letter names, letter sounds and learning songs. Put a letter into the reader to hear its name, its sound or a fun phonics song.

You know how I am. As soon as it was out of the box, I was ramming the "B" in an effort to get Evan to start saying "Bee" instead of "Mama!"

But, like everything else, it failed. And he still calls me "Huh?" I guess it's better than when he called me by bodily function sounds.

Evan and Jacque have both been sick this week and yet I dared the odds and visited yesterday.

I hadn't seen Evan much in the past couple of weeks, so he had a lot to tell me. So not only was he very animated, he was also very cranky because he didn't feel well.

"Shall we show Aunt Bee your favorite book?"

Jacque takes Evan to the library on Fridays. Last Friday, they had picked up a book about a duck. But the best part was that it was full of bees, too!

"We were reading it a couple of hours ago and he pointed out each one. He would get all excited and shout 'Bee!' everytime we turned a page," Jacque explained.

"Evan, come here," she requested as she opened the book. "Where's the bee?"

He stopped running in circles and looked at Jacque. Then Evan ran to the refrigerator like a man on a mission. He grabbed the magnetic "B" and shoved it into the reader.

Well, not quite what we were looking for, but absolutely correct.
