As Abraham was piecing together a puzzle this morning
after Abby (age 10) read her history selection, she said to me, "Why don't we read about the founding of America from the British point of view."
I loved this. I loved that she was able to think outside the box; that just because something is written in an educational book that doesn't mean that it is the only point of view. I liked that she was able to think about how the other side might have felt. I just loved that she is able to think that sometimes things don't always fit together neatly like a puzzle.
(now I have some research to do...)
