Teaching as a Lively Art

We had a bit of a chuckle from this quote from the book, Teaching As A Lively Art.

The child of three has become a distinct individual. He calls himself "I",that name expressive of discovered selfhood. No longer is he content merely to eat,drink, sleep and make aimless motions. He has found himself in relation to his surroundings and continually reaches out to shape them more to his liking. He models play on adult patterns, digging, building,looking at books and pictures, tending and scolding dolls like a bossy parent. Hi incessant talks is the despair of grown-ups. It pours forth in torrents of questions to which any answer seems entirely satisfying.

Three years olds are pretty cool!
