Nathan is 5 and has not really learned to play with toys. He’ll usually mouth it or if it has wheels, he’ll spin it. This week, he’s been asking for the toy animals. My highlight for the week was when he asked for the animals. As I gave it to him, he said, “There are lots if animals at Oji (the nearby zoo) Zoo.”. Then he looked for the hippo and as he found it he said, “Can you open your mouth like a hippo?” I cheered while granting his request. Then he picked up the lion and said, “Can you roar like a lion?” we roared as I cheered! Then he took the tiger saying, “Here comes the tiger.”
He did put those pieces on his lips after but I consider that great progress.
