This year's What's Falmouth Reading pick has resulted in a new game for H & C to play. One in which they climb to the top of the tallest rock in our backyard, someone yells "there's Moby Dick!" and they commence throwing their bamboo "harpoons."
H has also made this observation: "The difference between Moby Dick and Baby Beluga is that Baby Beluga is nice and Moby Dick is mean."
Of course no one is pitching harpoons at Baby Beluga. At least not in any of the verses we sing.

song: Porcelain • artist: Moby

Ah, the unexpected things that happen when a town reads a book like Moby-Dick! Just linked from the library blog to you, because I'm sure other people will be equally inspired by the new games your children have created! Jill

Hi Jill,
I think I have the nerdiest children on the block!
C and I are signed up to read M-D on Saturday beginning at 4:30. Hope to see you there!
