Tonight at bedtime we read the book Wings, a cute story about a little boy who is different and a little girl who finds the courage to stand up for him. At the end of the story is a little blip about the book, and how the author wrote it to encourage kids to embrace what makes them unique.
Upon completion of the story I asked the boys a simple question: "What makes you different from other kids?"
Gage's answer: "I can see in the dark and nobody else can."
Max: "Lots of ducks like to sit on my head."
I treasure moments like these. The honesty and imagination of two little boys who bring us joy. Creative play, childhood happiness, wholesome spirits.
