My body can do many things. I can hear, touch, feel, smell and see. Let’s explore these 5 senses together.

My Mouth is a Volcano!

All of Louis thoughts are very important to him. In fact, his thoughts are so important to him that when he has something to say, his words begin to wiggle, and then they do the jiggle, then his tongue pushes all of his important words up against his teeth and he erupts, or interrupts others. His mouth is a volcano!
