“If a child is to keep alive his inborn sense of wonder without any such gift from the fairies, he needs the companionship of at least one adult who can share it, rediscovering with him the joy, excitement and mystery of the world we live in." - Rachel Carson

Rowan's Spectacular Spectacles

Rowan's new book obsession is the Fancy Nancy series. At first I thought, "Oh great...another bunch of books about a girl with a princess complex," but it turns out Nancy is fancy because she has an excellent vocabulary and is always using big, fancy words. Rowan is particularly in love with the book, Fancy Nancy's Spectacular Spectacles, which is about how Nancy is jealous of her friend who gets sparkly eyeglasses. She wants glasses too, but her mom assures her it is better to have good eyesight, and then they use an old pair of sunglasses to make her own pair of spectacular spectacles. So Rowan and I made some spectacles with some of my old beads, hot glue and a pair of her old sunglasses. According to Rowan , the result is most definitely...spectacular!
