Whenever the long name of the first born is recited
The incredulity of the long name...to hear it being recited, brings awe to the kids who are listening to the story...
I remember following along to this via a book on tape that chimed to let you know when to turn the page. wonderful story.
As a retired teacher I remember the delight of my first graders as they listened to the repetitions of that great long name. They repeated it from memory and giggled as the eyes of parents opened wide at their ability. I was delighted to find it on Audible at such a reasonable price. I could not resist. As I listened to Peter Thomas reading that great long name with suitable expression, I giggled aloud again.
I love reading, but I love audible even MORE!
I am so happy to be able to share this book with my children. I loved this book when our teacher read it to us. And I love that they have it on audible. That way our teacher could still be reading it to me and my kids!!
A fellow Bookworm. :-) Bookworms unite!
The last time I heard this story was on Reading Rainbow with Lavar Burton when I was around 5 years old and I never forgot it! Hearing it again brought all my childhood memories flooding back!
The story itself is a classic! You will never forget a name like Tikki Tikki Tembo ... or the rest of the characters - from the caring and exasperated younger brother to the neglectful mother and the dreamy old man.
A cautious tale, it teaches plenty of life lessons for kids and parents alike!
