Return of Brown Bear

Katherine has developed Owen's love of 'Brown Bear, Brown Bear, What Do You See?' by Bill Martin Jr and Eric Carle. Owen preferentially chose B4 over all books for months when he was this age, demanding that we read it over and over again.

Last night Katherine wiggled out of my lap and pulled B4 off the shelf. She loves it just as much as her big brother, although her favorite part so far is poking Red Bird in the eye.

Hello, world


10 REM Katherine's first word
100 SAY "Hello"
110 INPUT Reply$
120 IF Reply$ <> "Hello" THEN GOTO 110
140 IF RANDOM(1) < .333 THEN WAVE
150 GOTO 100

For those of you not feeling your old-school BASIC, Katherine's first word is "hello" (really). She says it to you and is very happy when you reply in kind, sometimes so much so that she'll wave.
