Treasure Island today, so I sat her down and went through the various comprehension questions I could think of, and then asked her the "Questions for Discussions" found in the back of the book. (Love those!)
We discussed Jim Hawkins' choices and motivations, and Penguin thought she'd probably do a lot of things the same way he had done them in the book.
The discussion turned to Long John Silver with the following question: "John Silver is an unusual character. He is likable one minute and treacherous the next. Have you ever met someone like that?"
Penguin scrunched up her face in contemplation, and then she leaned in closer to me and said, "I do know one person like Long John Silver."
Feeling a little concerned, I leaned in closer as well, "You do? Who do you know who is likable one minute and then mean the next?"
Penguin glanced around quickly, and then said, "Monkeyboy."
