    Shows a mother and her two daughters sitting before a model of Noah's ark and its animals. One of the sisters holds a baby girl on her knee and the mother holds a model of a hippopotamus before the infant. The mother remarks that her baby is 'beginning to know all the beasts in the ark by name, too', but when she asks the baby the identity of the model she holds in her hand, the baby replies 'Mam-ma'.
