Kind of Dark

After reading a few books with me this afternoon, Ada decided she wanted to "read" some on her own. She plowed through three or four before asking me to find her another one.

"How about this one?" I asked, holding up a book.

"It's kind of dark."

"Dark? What do you mean?"

"It is dark. I want something lighter."

"Ok, how about Cars and Trucks and Things that Go?"


First, who knew that Ada classified books as light and dark?

Second, who would have guessed that Welcome Home, Big Bird would be considered dark?


  1. Maybe the actual colors? Or the subtle undertext of an anxious bird vanished from home for too long? I dont know. Pretty funny.

  2. Is there a chapter about Snuffy and his issues with smack?
