3V0846.02 Directed speech: Peggy in multiple roles and reading (5/17/80)
Peggy found the other day a toy candy dispenser with a rabbit head on top.
Today she sat on the floor, playing with it and reading the Britannica
‘Thinking’ book. She asked the rabbit:
Peggy: Wanta read it to me rabbit ?
Rabbit: That’s a cat.
Peggy: It sure is.
Later on, Peggy indulged in some more dialogue, as she and her toy
rabbit played with other small animals.
Rabbit: Hi. this is my house…. His house…. Hi, Pony. Hi, cow.
Peggy: (turning to me) Rabbit talking a pony.
