The Wisdom of a 4-year-old Girl

The last few days I've had the pleasure of hanging out with a lot of 4 and 5-year-olds. Have you ever sat down and tried to have a legit conversation with a preschooler? It's really entertaining. After a party, I asked my daughter "which one was Zoe?". She responded, "You saw her!" "I know, but what does she look like?" And she looks at me with her head slightly tilted and an exacerbated look on her face as she says "A human!"

Why do I share this story? Because, to a 4-year-old, there was no distinction of characteristics. She didn't think to say Asain or Black or White to describe a person. To her, all her friends are simply human.

Buy Rosie Revere, Engineer on AmazonSo in honor of my little human, she has asked me to share with you her favorite book (for the moment - this changes daily). She said, "people need to know this story, so they know that they have to keep trying." Rosie Revere, Engineer is such a cute story teaching us that we can learn from our failures and keep trying. So despite what we have done in the past, or where we are today, we can get to where we want to be only if we keep trying. 

This story ties in nicely to our Wink Collection. Look that challenge dead in the eye, and give it a wink.
