A Child’s Perspective

I am a 4 year old boy who loves to talk. Actually my birthday is coming in November but I like to say that I’m 4 years old in advance.

I love reading about the Big Bad Wolf and Jack and the Beanstalk and even Cinderella. I can make up my own stories too. That’s the most fun. Today I was telling my Mama the story about a girl called Cinderella and her pet cat that was also called Cinderella. Mama seemed most interested.

Yesterday I took my new book “My Favorite Fairy Tales” with me to school for Show and Tell. I love telling the story of the evil giant who followed Jack with a club when he was running away with the magic harp. The best part is when the giant comes in and says “Fee Fi Fo Fum, I smell the blood of an Englishman”.

I was supposed to tell the story to my classmates but when Ms. Faiza told me to come in the front of the class I was just not in the mood. So I refused. Yassin the boy with the curly brown hair had been bothering me when I was trying to draw a dinosaur with a spiky back and I was very cross. After that Noura the girl with the long hair and the Dora bag kept crying during story time and I couldn’t hear properly. To add to my troubles, my Mama had given me something new to try in snack time when I just wanted to eat cookies.

So when it was time for Show and Tell I was just in no mood to entertain anyone. And anyway Mia the cute girl with blue eyes hadn’t come that day so there was nobody to impress.

When I got home I told my Mama that I didn’t “read” the story like she had wanted me to. She told me I could try again another day.

Well, we’ll see about that.

  1. This story reminded me of my 4-year old during his Tae Kwon Do graduation. It was in the early morning, 9:00, and he had not had breakfast yet. When we got to the TKD place, it was packed with people and my son was not used to that. He decided that he would not do anything despite the encouragement that we and his teachers gave him. So, he just stood there in the front row with his head tilted and his face blank.
