Sometimes enough is enough
"Totally Absorbed" by Susan Larson

Mason, a precocious five-year-old boy who attends an upscale pre-school where they learn about things like viscosity and aerodynamics
Nana, Mason's grandmother

Setting: Nana's house, which is on a lake. Nana is reading on an upholstered couch and Mason runs in, snuggles up to her in a dripping wet bathing suit and totally soaks the couch.
Nana: Mason, hon, it's not a good idea to get on the couch when you're soaking wet. The fabric absorbs all the water from your suit.

Mason: What's absorb mean?

Nana: It means it soaks in and is hard to dry. We call that being absorbent.

Mason: Is the chair over there absorbent?

Nana: Yes, all chairs made out of fabric are absorbent.

Mason: Are there any chairs that are not absorbent?

Nana: Yes, the metal chairs on the deck.

Mason: Oh.

Nana: I'll tell you what. We can go to the kitchen and I'll gather a bunch of things and we can pour water on them and see which are absorbent and which aren't, OK?

Mason: No, thank you. I think I'll wait and learn about that in first or second grade.
