Olivine has loved reading aloud lately to her dolls or to herself. We realized she is imitating the teachers she hears and the tapes she listens to.
This was her explanation of a paper movie, when we asked so curiously about this.
It is a movie they put in a machine and it reads the book (Translation: a cd is put in a cd player) while the teacher holds the book and turns the pages. This is similar to books on tape but she is right, it is like watching a movie also, since each student doesn’t have a copy of the book.
I told her that I love paper movies too.
I am fascinated with the sometimes clear, practical, and rational explanations children have.
