How did we all get so convinced educating children requires so much "expertise"? We can all handle (and enjoy) reading fairy tales.

I guess I'm doing something right if all my daughter will read and write (I mean illustrate) is fairy tales. I don't know how many times she's picked up the Anderson fairy tales book that was given to me when I was her age. I never read it and she can't put it down.

Lego men! Love it. My mom says a lot of my creativity as a child came through with legos. I tend to think these sorts of creative outlets spurn creativity in the mind. Fantasy and fairy tales are definitely along those same lines.
