Have you listened to your cereal lately? I mean really listened. I was a little surprised to learn, after reading the box, that Rice Krispies sound different in French. Cric. Crac. Croc. But after careful examination, I realized that it is probably closer to the way they really sound. Snap. Crackle. Pop is a bit of an exaggeration – if you are honest about it.
On the way home from preschool today, my 3 year old son and I were surprised to hear the birds singing as we slushed through the snow. A lively debate ensued about what language birds tweet – English vs. French. I assured him that they speak bird language. But latter, after much thought, he insisted, “I think birds speak French.” And after careful examination, I would have to agree.
