With school starting for many kids this week, we present you something from the “Out of the Mouths of Babes” file.
Leslie McCollom is a preschool teacher at the New Day School in Portland, and she was just blown away by the things her kids would say.
“I only have magic powers for things that I want to do.”
“Are people made of meat?”
“Bigger kids like me are grouchy about pirates.”
Not long ago, Leslie started writing down these little bon mots. They eventually became a Twitter stream, and now … a book.
Leslie McCollom is the author of Preschool Gems: Love, Death, Magic, and Other Surprising Treasures from the Mouths of Babes.
