Ironic?

Is it odd that a child who spent her own money to purchase I Can Haz Cheeseburger?, a collection of pictures of adorable kittens with precious made up quotes in broken kitten English felt her intelligence was insulted yesterday when I bought the Junior Classics for Young Readers abridged versions of Black Beautyand Little Women? She can giggle for days about a kitty "wuvving" a new best friend but needs the entire original text from Louisa May Alcott?

Never underestimate non-examples as teaching tools. Those LOL cats have done wonders for language arts teachers everywhere!

I didn't know the LOL cats had their own book. Now it's on my list for my own daughter ;-)

Please tell your daughter I am thoroughly impressed. Holy smokes! How many children her age would even realize they were getting the "Reader's Digest" condensed-milk version? Bully for her.
