Wise beyond 5

The kids and I watched an animated fable where an ailing lion king invites his subject to visit him and convince him why they should be the next ruler.  A fox did not visit the lion because when he got to the mouth of the cave dwelling, he noticed that there were footprints going in, but none going out.  It showed the lion surrounded by heaps of bones.
"That sneaky, bad lion, " I said.
Willa furrowed her brow.  I started to explain what the lion had done to his subjects, and she interrupted.
"I know what happened.  I wonder why you say he was bad.  Lions have to eat too, mom."

And then I had to explain what insightful meant.
