Unexpected First Word

I know it is not cool to go on about how wonderful your own kids are, but I do have a reading related bit of news about my daughter, Rose.

Over half term, she said her first word:

"Baboon"

I was so proud, what a great first word. It was inspired by a book we got out of the library,
Baby Baboon by Mwenye Hadithi (Author) and Adrienne Kennaway (Illustrator). It is not a book we looked at any more than any other, but something obviously made a strong impression.

I'm am now trying her on gibbon, bonobo and orangutan!
