Scrabble with Ben

Ben is starting to read (more about this exciting development another day), but he’s not what you’d call literate yet. Still, when he found the Scrabble set and asked me to play with him, I figured we’d give it a whirl.
He loved the feel of the little tiles, as I do, and was pleased with how neatly they fit on the rack. He was happy to count out his 7 letters, and replace the proper number every time he played a “word.” But he wasn’t particularly interested in building on the words already played. Or in playing with actual English words (although he did ask me for the pronunciation of each word he played, and would report on them to Tony, correcting Tony if he mispronounced the imaginary word). It was a good game.
