It makes learning difficult when your kid has no idea what is in the picture. Here is an example.

A warm hug is like…


a diseased liver? (Real answer: a water bottle)

A warm hug is like….

A warm hug is like…..


…. an infected belly button? (Real answer: A Huggle. I have no idea what the hell a Huggle is either)
