When I think of my childhood the word Barney automatically comes to mind. This lovable purple dinosaur was not only entertainment, but a teacher as well! There is a joke in my family that Barney was the reason I got into Kindergarten. While I was taking my entrance exam for school the teacher pulled out a tray of shapes and asked me to name them. My mom supposedly panicked because she forgot to teach me that lesson. Well, she stopped panicking because I started to name all the shapes and even explained how many corners each had! My mom later asked me how I knew all those shapes and I simply said "Barney taught me mama". Thanks to Barney I got into Kindergarten!
