This is adorable!  What a fantastic way to broaden a toddler’s vocabulary.  *scribbles down lesson plans for his own sprogs once they sprout*

hello. gosh, i did not know that Shakespeare made a drill. i have a good battery powered one. of course i like to shop. anybody got any info on this one? i pray the boy will not scar. is this the part where we fast forward and he rapes and kills his daddy; through yon winder of wintry bleak?
