A Tulip Profile
I gave a lesson on Earth Day with the kindergarten yesterday. I read a book with lovely metaphors called Mother Earth. I tried not to get too passionate when discussing endangered animals and pollution because I made a second-grader cry last year. Today I gave them recycled shopping bags made of plastic bottles to decorate with Earth Day logos. While painting, they kept talking about their “Mother,” but one very intelligent Bulgarian boy emphatically said, “It just doesn’t make any sense!” Oh well, so much for figurative language.
