Something to remember

I found this on Michelle's blog, Mountain Top Farms, in a wonderful post about a trip to the library with her son:

"Learning only happens when a child is interested. Otherwise, it is like throwing marshmallows at his head and calling it eating."
It's one of those things I've seen in action in my own family, even so I still sometimes forget.

Great quote. I've those days when I've been the one throwing marshmallows. It's a better day when they are eating the meal all by themselves!
Thanks for pointing me to the story about the books and the library. That is cool, and I agree!

I love the marshmallow quote.
