one of sterling’s favorite books is entitled “brown bear, brown bear, what do you see?” by bill martin jr & eric carle.
each picture in the book counts as eye candy with carle’s typical artistic style, and then the back of the book has an extra touch to it…a great big brown bear butt! i (jarod) did not want sterling to only learn what’s on the inside of this book, but i wanted him to be able think outside the book too! thus, i began to ask sterling, “brown bear butt, brown bear butt, what do you say?” and then i proceeded to teach sterling to make a flatulant-like sound.
this little lesson soon became very handy. naturally, after teaching sterling this new sound i wanted him to display his new skill to the family. so after being serenaded with the all-too-wonderfully-out-of-tune davis family birthday song, he put on his show…
