Don't Let the Pigeon Drive the Bus

I've been trying to get Asher to memorize an Emily Dickinson poem for my mom for a few months, but Asher had another great piece of literature in mind.

That is adorable!

I love how children have this ability to memorize books they hear.

It's sad that we lose that ability when we start reading . . .

You should be so proud of Asher. He did a great job. I especially loved his little hmmph on the pages with the squiggle over the pigeon's head.

So awesome.

I'm so happy you got him to do it! For the rest of my life whenever I feel sad I'll watch this video because it's the BEST.
I've got dreams too you know!

Love it! We LOVE Mo Willems. Have you read Knufflebunny? It's one of our personal favorites. That reading was a pretty amazing fete.

Asher has the most adorable voice on the planet. I could just eat him up!

Christy, we love Mo Willems! I'll have to get the Knufflebunny books. I'm partial to Leonoardo the Terrible Monster.

Wow!!!!!! Way to go, Asher!!!! That was awesome! I don't think I'll ever want to read that book without Asher to read it to me! I, too liked his sound effects on the pages that didn't have any words :D

What a smarty pants!!! :)

Clearly, Asher has captured the definitive voice of the pigeon. Someday they will talk about Asher's Pigeon as they talk about Olivier's Hamlet!

I showed these videos to my boys at the first of the week and now they have asked to watch them everyday since. I would just like to thank Asher for teaching Briggs how to read!
