Just a Quick Story

Have you ever read Tikki Tikki Tembo?


I remember reading it in elementary school but hadn’t read it since until I recently got a copy for our family library. I have now read it approximately 162 times ;)

Anyway. I dont want to give away the story or anything, but at one point, the Mother is very upset about … something. Allie mentioned that she thought the mother was mad at the little boy. I asked her why she thought so and she pointed out the expression on the mother’s face in the illustration.


“I know that face!”, she said.


I can’t imagine where she’s ever seen that face before!

I laughed and laughed. I guess I give my kids The Look my mom gave me. I learned it well!
