Learning to Crawl and Talk–by Daniel Holland
LEARNING TO CRAWL -- When I was little, I liked crawling and was able to crawl really fast. All the big people towering over me kept trying to get me to walk and stand up. The only time I would stand up is when no one was around. Crawling was my favorite way to get around. But I did not think that it would be as practical outside with all the potholes.
LEARNING TO TALK -- Adults keep repeating words to little kids trying to get them to talk. But kids aren't birds. They aren't parrots. What if a kid's first words were "Polly want a cracker?" instead of "Mommy" or "Daddy"?
