Telling old stories to very young people. August 2012
I've been having fun with very young people in childcare centres. Its quite something to have the undivided concentration of babies. The capacity of these minds is awesome to contemplate. These young ones are learning language skills, physical skills and acquiring a sense of self and others at an exponential rate. In just 10 years they will outstrip me in my computer skills, maths (that wouldn't be hard) and most they likely they will be bilingual.
Each little one, a bundle of potential.
Here we are working with rhymes, hand claps and string stories, universal and as old as time.
