Burnett Best…Zander Callaghan

BURNETT BEST: Picking the brains of four-year-old Zander. Picture: CONTRIBUTED

Have you ever wondered what goes on inside the mind of a four-year-old?

This week for Burnett’s Best we sat down with Zander Callaghan who sometimes visits the Burnett Today office with his Dad and media consultant, Michael Callaghan.

As the school holidays wind up maybe you are feeling relieved to have your little ones out of your hair or perhaps you are missing having a buddy to follow you around.

No topic was off-limits with the hilarious and undeniably adorable Zander, as we discussed everything from volcanoes to chocolate.

What is your favourite thing to watch on your iPad?

I like watching Bumblebee because he’s a robot.

Dinosaurs because I love dinosaurs and I love T-Rex.

Yes, T-Rex have sharp teeth but I would be friends with a T-Rex.

Because they have lava if you touch it you die.
