Sahamamama Posted January 7, 2011 Share Posted January 7, 2011 ... do they pick up the readers' accents? My oldest daughter does this, and it's so funny. If she listens to Mary Poppins, read in a crisp, British accent, she emerges from her room saying, "Spit-spot. Pip-pip. Cheerio." She sounds so, so... BRITISH! :001_huh: If she listens to Holly Hunter's rousing rendition of The Three Little Pigs, she talks with a nasal drawl and says things like "ripe and red and better than you said" -- referring to an apple. :lol: If she listens to Cherry Jones reading Little House on the Prairie, she calls us "Ma" and "Pa" -- and sounds a little "country-fied." :D She does this with almost every audiobook -- picks up the accent, along with the story. Do your kids do this? Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
