” A f r i c a n Elephant “

From the diary of a Pre-School Teacher

My five-year old students are learning to read.

Yesterday one of them pointed at a picture in a zoo book and said,

“Look at this! It’s a frickin’ elephant!”

I took a deep breath, then asked… “What did you call it?”

“It’s a frickin’ elephant! It says so on the picture!”

And so it does…
