Elle has a great love for books. Especially books that will teach her how things work. One great activity that Elle shares with her grandmother is trips to the library. On one of their most recent outing Elle came back with a book about parasites. She was so enthused by the subject she wanted to teach mom and dad all about them. Elle stood in front of the fireplace with one hand on her hip the other hand holding her magic wand as a pointer. Before she began her lesson she asked. "Mom, Dad, are you paying attention. Mom please take notes, ok."
"Parasites can be in your body but, they can be hard to see because they are so small. You can hardly see them. They are little bugs that do stuff in your body. So they can be very tiny and you can only see them with a microscope. Germs are also very tiny too. But, the good germs that protect your body get them out of your body."
As she was giving her lesson her eyes were closed tightly in order to concentrate. It was a great lesson and I look forward to more in her future lecture series. Under strict instruction she had her mom illustrate different parasites and germs. They are below.
