Teaching them to read

Last night, Princess was reading "Thomas and the School Trip" to me when she came to a stumbling block.

"Mom, what does little six without a hole, little six without a hole h-u-r-r-y spell?"

After a bit of conversation (I must have been busy with another child to not look) where I continued to ask for clarification, I looked.

Ever looked closely at quotation marks?
