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. 🙂
