A Richard Scarry Revelation
Today I learned that if you give two busy boys (age three and four respectively) a copy of Richard Scarry's Cars and Trucks and Things That Go, their little transportation-obsessed minds fall into an almost trance-like state -- causing them to cuddle up together on the couch and sweetly flip through every single page of the book.
They attentively poured over each page, discussing which "soldier man truck" is superior and debating whether the hook and ladder truck is "more awesomer" than the regular old firetruck. This went on for over an hour.
Little boys and mothers agree -- Richard Scarry is a genius.
