Eucalyptus probably is not a common word in a young child's vocabulary. Ask author Daniel Bernstrom of Red Wing, however, and he can tell you his 3-year-old daughter uses the four-syllable tree name with ease.

Bernstrom is the Learning Resource Center coordinator at the Minnesota State College - Southeast Technical's Red Wing campus.
