Say What? Beauty and the Beast

December 18, 2012 § Leave a comment

Hiram has a Disney Christmas Story Book which we got out for him a few weeks ago. It’s a very special-looking book– thick with a hard cover, chapters and silver-edged pages — so he’s been keeping it close at hand. After sampling almost every story in the book, Hiram has landed on Beauty and the Beast as his favorite.

It’s not the traditional story but instead a long, rambling story with many asides and pointless sub-plots. But, Hiram loves it. And so. In an effort to like the story a little more by seeing it through Hiram’s eyes, I asked him what he loves about it so much.

I like that,” he said pointing to what I thought was the Beast.

“Yeah, the beast is pretty cool.” I said.

“No.” Hiram said. “I like the beauty. She is pretty like my mama.”

OK then.

Just let me know when you want me to read that story to you again, my sweet boy.
