Oh, you pretty things. Welcome to your new home, little ones. Stand up, Never give up. Love and be loved.
While we have many reasons for spending so much time on story -- we know the research. We know that story is essential to brain development, language acquisition, literacy, resiliency, and empathy -- sure we do! But here, gathered around a campfire, we hear and watch our work take flight as the children become the story tellers.
We have the future inside the walls and garden of our little cooperative school. We know the future surrounds us and is being cared for carefully. And here it is about community and the strength of "we." The future may not be evenly distributed, but it will be. Yes, it will and it will start with "we."
