acting the book

love it! I'm reading this book with my seven year old and there are many times that she will do the motion that one of the characters is doing. Ma slapping her hands on the table to yell enough, or Minli placing the goldfish into the river. I'm trying to figure out if this is to help her understand what we are reading together -- or if it is such vivid language that she can see it in her eyes and can't help herself to act it out. (She's been in a couple of plays, so she is an actor at heart.)
