Here are a couple favorite stories as retold by Caleb.

The Story of Joseph: Genesis 37-47

Me: "Caleb, what happened to Joseph?"

Caleb: "Jo-FUS brothers gave him to the camels."

Me: "Why did they do that? Were they jealous?"

Caleb: "Yea. Cuz Jo-FUS had a red, fast truck and he drived really fast."

Mike Mulligan and His Steam Shovel by Virginia Lee Burton

Caleb: "Mulligan digged the dirt and dumped the dirt."

Me: "Then what did Mike Mulligan do?"

Caleb: "Mulligan digged, "BING, BANG, CRASH, SLAAAM!" The dust settled in just one day."

Me: "What happened when Mike Mulligan was finished?"

Caleb: "Mulligan ran to his house and the horse shouted, 'Come back, Mulligan! Come back!' He opened the door and the fire engine and the garbage truck were in his house. The fire engine was REALLY BIG!"

(Two weeks ago, Caleb saw a boy at the grocery store buying a foot-long fire engine. He has been begging for one since and uses every opportunity to propagandize.)
