Thirsty Crow - 2010 (Pattu's Version?)

I got to know this from her school. Her version of the story goes like this....

The crow is thirsty and goes looking for water and finds some water in the pot but at the bottom...'oh oh, now what' thinks the crow...
Old story till now... and then...
The crow flies around looking for a straw and finds one and has a hearty drink and flies away happy happy....
I asked Pattu if she said that and she agreed. Who taught her to say that? - No answer.
Why did she bring the straw into the story? What about the stones?
Pattu: You should not put stones in water amma, water will become dirty...

Give your pattu kutti a big hug from her new patti. Brilliant thinking and to think that a 4 year old understands water pollution!unbelievable.

Good thinking skills. This story is apt for our times. Guess kids these days observe and apply their minds unlike our generation.

BTW first timer on your blog and hope to be a regular.

Too good. That is the difference between a bird and a human, but at the age of 4 to say that is just too too brilliant.
