Why is 'pronunciation' such a long word?

Peter is in love with all things dinosaurs. He frequently bypasses food in favor of playing with his dino toys. Now he only 'reads' books about dinosaurs. He will make us read to him for hours and recite every detail about the dinos - from stats and measurements to appetites and teeth length. He has a pretty good memory so each time we go through a book he remembers quite a bit of the info.

One of our favorite dinos to read about is this guy:

Pachycephalosaurus - pak-ee-SEF-uh-lo-SAWR-us

Any trouble with the pronunciation just watch the video:

Stick with Pete - he won't lead you astray when it comes to 7 syllable dinosaur names.

Wow! That is very impressive. I love how each kid has their own thing that they just can't get enough of. You have one smart kid on your hands.
