AnnaM Posted September 6, 2012 Share Posted September 6, 2012 My oldest takes everything SO literally. Example: Bible lesson says "draw Goliath flat on his back!". She draws Goliath flat and on his back. This was funny the first few times, now it is driving me crazy. Today when she was reading Stuart Little she kept complaining that nothing made sense, so I took the book and we read a few lines together. "Stuart liked to be the first one up, he liked seeing the books standing still on the shelf...and more descriptions of the room". She in exasperation says "SEE! of course the books are still on the shelf, why would they be anything but still? Books can't move!". She was quite emotional over why they would bother to tell her something that was so obvious. I tried explaining that it was a descriptive to give her an idea of what the room looked like, but to her it was useless "well duh" information. I don't know what to do to help her understand these sorts of descriptions! Quote Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
