I realize that this is a bit of post overload for one day, but I just HAVE to share Mr. Kluges's pre-bedtime story reading to Pumpkin 'cuz it had me doubled over with giggles in the kitchen.
Apparently, in Mr. Kluges's version of Chicken Little, Ducky Lucky is Scottish, Goosey Loosey is Indian, Gander Lander is a Texan, and Turkey Lurkey is French. Now if you know Mr. Kluges, you can imagine just how hilarious it was to overhear the accents! "We're going to tell the king the sky is falling." Hee-hee! I'll never read it the same way again.
