Free to Learn

My middle daughter's fifth birthday is coming up in a few days. I was at the local toy shop, Timeless Toys, and the clerk admired my choice in gifts. She said that she and her husband, both biologists, hoped that their two young sons became interested in science as they grew older. I told her that her children would be what she wanted them to be as long as they learned to love it when they were young. Which is why I was buying a microscope for my five-year-old daughter to "play" with.

What your children play at is what they will play at when they are no longer children!
