“The plant is named after a soft animal,” Pamela says. “Can you think of a soft animal?”

“Squirrel!” Alejandro shouts. “Squirrels are soft.”

“Lambs are soft, too,” Pamela replies. “This plant is called Lamb’s Ear because it is soft like a lamb.”

“Can I have four?” Alejandro asks.

“Do you have someone you want to share with?” Pamela says.

Alejandro replies, “My grandma, my mom and my friend.”
