"Jeremy, can you say 'floor'?" Harry will ask.
"Ooor," says Jeremy.
"That's right, Jeremy. Jeremy said 'floor.'"
"Jeremy, can you say 'grass'?"
"Raah," answers Jeremy.
"That's right, Jeremy."
Harry's been teaching Jeremy to talk. Surely, Harry has always been a role model for his younger brother and teaches him just by being there to be watched. But, Harry understands that Jeremy is learning to talk and he's trying to help. I don't know whether that has anything to do with his hearing that "Jeremy can't talk very well yet" and therefore doesn't have to ask for things as politely as Harry does. But, it hardly matters. Harry's a very good brother no matter what.
