What An Animal

Maddie and I play this game where one of us thinks of an animal, and then answers questions or gives clues until the other guesses what it is.  Usually, the game only lasts for two or three guesses because we give pretty easy clues.

It was Maddie’s turn to guess.  She asked if it had a long neck, and then guessed if it was a duck.  Nope, it wasn’t a duck.  I gave her a clue:

“It’s smaller than a duck.”

“Is it a horse?”

“Nope, a horse isn’t smaller than a duck.  Pick an animal smaller than a duck.”

“A hippo?  A cow!?  A pig?”

“No, no, no!  C’mon Maddie.  Think of an animal smaller than a duck.”

She scrunched her face for a second, then guessed, “A small elephant?”
