Prime of Learning: Childhood

It gives me the greatest pleasure to watch young children learning about nature. I know these things they are learning will affect their view on the earth, animals, plants, the cycle of life, and even their purpose in being here.



Little boy in homemade sun hat learns how to pod his first pea


Isn’t this little tyke just adorable? The flap on his hat is sticking straight up in the breeze, but all he cares  about is how to get the next pea out.


I like the young voices in this next video clip exclaiming: “Oh – he’s beautiful”, and “He’s a live little fish! (giggle)”. In the background you can hear “Row, row” as someone is learning to row a boat – just saying…because it is audible and might make you wonder what’s going on. What’s going on is a learning adventure at our pond, garden, animal pens, yard and home.

      It seems like most little people are receptive to this kind of thing if I start with learning about animals – that’s there first love.
