Children


When I was in Panama City last week, I spent one morning speaking to kindergarten through third grade students at an elementary school. I simply read them "The Tale of Three Trees" and then let them ask questions--and boy, was that fun. Art Linkletter was right when he said kids say the darndest things. :-) They were so cute and enthusiastic.

Here's a link to a news report and a wee bit of video, if you're interested.

The other day one of my friends asked about writing in a child's point of view: I told him to remember that children are very literal, they have a great sense of wonder, and they can easily believe in magic. I hope I carry those qualities over into my adult life. :-)

I didn't see the video, Angie.

You have to click on that tiny picture of a video camera. :-)

I clicked and was taken to a Facebook warning page, then onto channel 7 NBC and the story. The tiny camera did not work for me either.

I saw the video! Do I get a prize? LOL

Those kids probably have no idea what a treat they experienced! But one day they may look back and remember. . . .

Nice video, Angie. Lucky kids! Could you come to San Antonio to read the book to my little one? She would love it!!! Her birthday is next week, and I bought "The True Princess" and "The Sleeping Rose" for her. She earned the first one as an early gift this weekend and read it to ME so I could go to sleep! =) Clyde
