THE GLORIES OF A CHILD'S IMAGINATION
There is not much better then the morning I spent with the kindergarten classes at the Berlin Memorial School, doing a reading of Wee Three.
This particular morning I decided to ask the children what they would like to be if they were not a human. I was thrilled with the different answers I recieved.
Tyler wanted to be a duck and Amanda a river. When I asked them why they chose these two particular things. Amanda told me she would like to be able to flow free seeing the world, tumbling over the rocks without the need to worry about being hurt.
Tyler said that he thought that ducks were beautiful, they could swim and also walk on the ground. He particularly enjoyed watching them in the when they were in the water bobbing there heads for food.
I told them when I was little I wanted to be a bumblebee. Because I could fly over the garden wall and into the cherry tree. I could eat and eat and eat all day and never wash my face or comb my hair. This brought many giggles and lots of laughter.
Unfortunately all good things come to an end. So I wrapped up my reading with snow magic and let the blue jays, cardinals and woodpeckers fly in the form of colored wings to the delight of us all.
