Seeford's Spot

Reader, not a writer, and like to keep it that way - I'd rather be reading!
The Magic School Bus Lost in the Solar System - Joanna Cole, Bruce Degen OK, so a book that starts this conversation is GREAT!!

Sitting at traffic light in car, looking at the sunset:
5 yr old: Mommy did you know, the sun is a giant ball of gas?
Me: Why, yes it is...[thus ensues a conversation on the size of the sun compared to the earth, other planets in the solar system, etc.)

When I asked her if they were talking about the sun/solar system in preschool, she said no, she was reading about it in the Magic School Bus book.

Can I just say - AWESOME!!!! = )
Doesn't hurt that they also watch the MSB shows occasionally as well - good reinforcement of the topics.
