#TBT. Not unicorn magic, but ground trolls beware: this literate 5-year old is drawing a line in the sand. I’m charmed as of old.




*The real magic potion’s here: This young fellow attached to the fingers in the foreground sees writing as Something That We Do. He has markers, pencils, scissors, dry erase boards, paper galore, stapler, tape, booksbooksbooksbooks all over, and parents who read, converse, laugh, and write. (Plus a marvelous all-day Kindergarten Teacher named Mrs. Foley, a Miss Frizzle come to life.) This is a literate environment.
