My 4-year-old started preschool a few weeks ago and this week he is the “child of the week”. The point is to let all the kids get to express themselves and get to know each other in a different way.
He had to pick his favorite book to share with the class and selected the BIBLE. Ben and I just looked at each other and wondered if the teacher was going to be “Riiiiiiight, parents. he picked THIS one?” but he did. The story of Jonah resonates with him, there is just enough of the spookiness and weirdness to fascinate him.
He also had to pick out pictures to share with his class. He looked literally hundreds of photos with me and selected the following ones, and I put his reasons for selecting them. I’m pretty sure a 16 year old would select very similar pictures with very similar reasons for picking them out… ha ha!
