What these numbers say?

In the past few weeks, we keep hearing the same phrase, "What these numbers say?".  They are really interested in letters and words, and are eager to learn.  Numbers is often used in exchange for letters, but we don't mind.  Brooks told me the other night that he wants me to teach him how to read.  They are interested, but I think we need to learn our letters first.  As we drive down a road, they notice all of the signs, and ask what they say. 

Adlyn loves to sing songs, and is getting close to singing all of her ABC's.  It typically goes like this:
A, B, C, D, L, M, N, O, P, Y, & Z.
Not bad, what she has in the correct order.
Last week she kept saying, "Minnow, minnow, P."  It made me laugh.  She sings a lot, and is very close to singing Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star and Row, Row, Row your Boat to perfection.

In addition to Brooks asking about numbers and letters, he is curious about "What kind ____ this is?" and "Where _____ at?"  For example, he sees a tractor, and asks us, "What kind of tractor this is?".  Or, "Where Salt Lake City at?".  I think I'll need to pull up a map sooner than later to show him where things are proportionally.  In regards to tractors and every other item he sees, I often don't have another word or more information to share with him.  (For example...  Brooks:  What kind of tile is this?  Anne:  I don't know, just tile by the front door.)  Or, he wants to know who built things.  Such as, who built our house, or who built the street, or who built our bathroom.  If I respond with "builder", it isn't good enough. 
Brooks:  What kind of builder?
Me:  A construction builder. 
Brooks:  Where construction builder live at? 
Me:  In town. 
Question after least he is interested in a lot of different things!
