Weighing In on The Water Horse (to page 72)
We came home from yesterday with a few more chapters of Dick King-Smith's The Water Horse read. It has kept everyone's interest. In fact, we gained another listener in a nine year old family friend who was in Maine with us. The strange egg has hatched into a water horse (like a little Loch Ness monster). He is very hungry and growing everyday. Kirstie and her family must transfer him, first to their goldfish pond and then to the lochan (little lake). We have learned about otters, herons, omnivores, carnivores, and useful sailor phrases. So far, so good.
