After I finished what I was working on, I scanned the Facebook feed and saw a Sesame Street parody of Les Miserables.
I started watching the video, and Bow, who was lounging on the bench outside, was attracted by the music and voices from my laptop. He asked to come back in, and after he was in the inner pen he led me to the glass and spelled:
תני לי לראות
"Let me see."
I took the laptop in and played the video for him.
Bow had no trouble identifying the emotions of the muppets on the screen. He could tell who was sad, who was happy, and what music was good for a rousing march. When Cookie Monster decided to share the cookies with everyone, Bow looked pleased.
Bow is definitely not autistic. He has a theory of mind. I can no longer watch serious movies with him, because the feelings of the characters in the movies upset him. But this version of Les Miserables was just short enough and at the right level for a happy and successful viewing experience.
