Childhood has its own way of seeing, thinking and feeling, and nothing is more foolish than to try to substitute ours for theirs. Rousseau
A few days ago my neighbour was walking with her young son. In the middle of a roundabout stood a cherry tree at the height of its springtime glory. Suddenly the child came to a standstill, saying in awe, ‘O Mummy, look!’ She responded, ‘Isn’t it wonderful?’ The child breathed, ‘It’s a JCB!’
Mother and child had eyes for entirely different things!
