Little Bear has the most serious expression as he toddles around the room, picking up treasures until he is satisfied. When he has four dissimilar items, such as a deck of cards, a pencil, a piece of string, and a hammer, he chooses a spot and very carefully sits down to work. He sits at his little table by the window, or the rug in my office, or the foot of his bed, and he plays pretend. He arranges them in different ways, uses one or the other as a tool, and … makes something. I don’t know how else to describe it, but it’s really quite something.
At least, as his Mama, I think it is. I could watch him at this game all day long.
