Words, Words, Words from a Four-Year-Old Boy

"To touch the moon, you have to have a very big mountain. And when you touch it, you can bring it in your house and it will glow in the bathroom. The moon glows in the bathroom. Isn't that cool?!?" Nick Raihala, 2003

Where would you put the moon if you could touch it? Would it be the comforting nightlight in your bathroom or the soft glow out your window on a dark and stormy night? Would it shine over your dining room table on friends and family gathered there, or out of your fireplace in the den, or in your stove as bread baked?

I would put mine in our Library, where the soft white glow would make every book enchanted and light the scenes of our imagination as I read to my boys.
