Who's teaching who...?

"Oh, you got new books from the school library? Let me see. "The fox and the grapes"! Now that's one story every child should read. Let me read it to you. See the picture, this is a grapevine. A plant in which grapes grow. See? It's a creeper."

"Nah."
"What?"

"It isn't a creeper."
"It is. See, it is growing all the way up the tree, holding on to its trunk."

"It is not a creeper, it is a crawler."
"Crawler?"

"A creeper grows on the ground. Like this. A crawler grows up, crawling through the tree trunk."
"Ahh... yes. Crawler, you're right. Crawler. Not a creeper."
