The Muppet who lacks external ears as well as a sense of empathy has written a vocabulary building book for pre-schoolers. "Elmo think most pre-school kids need vocabulary help in important area. They don't know enough dirty words. Elmo's book will take them beyond 'poo-poo' and 'pee-pee.'"
The cover of the book looks innocent enough. In the lower right hand corner the label that says "Big flaps for little hands" is code for the real content.
The book has three sections plus an introduction. The introduction explains the book's purpose and gives a list of the basic vocabulary, enough to help them not feel lost when they first use the big kid bathroom at school and see what's written on the walls. It also explains the sorts of situations where swear words come in handy, like hitting your funny bone or when kids call you names. The three sections that follow cover scatology, blasphemy, and sex with examples of effective use of the new words as well as creative ways to combine words from the three lists. Other Muppets lend a hand. You'll find out what Grover says when, in his superhero guise, he flies into a lamp post. You'll see how Bert and Ernie reduce bullies to tears when they make homophobic slurs. Oscar shows off some of the witty things you won't hear him say on TV. Big Bird and Snuffy give examples of talking trash. The book also has an appendix that covers double entendres. It helps kids learn how to say things that will fly under the adult radar.
You can also buy a workbook that provides hundreds of exercises and creative activities to help the little ones develop their skills.
At only $4.99 each for the book and workbook, Balls is an essential for your child's bookshelf. I promise you they'll love it. They'll soon be smirking and giggling enigmatically. You might want to get a copy of the Teacher's Guide, only $29.99, for yourself so you can deal effectively with your child's new ways of answering back.
