Shared reading has made my child a Frog and Toad and George and Martha fan. Preschool has made him a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles fan. (Remember them, ’80s kids? They’re back.) In the absence of action figures, he uses his Lego animals as Ninja Turtles. The other day he was playing superheroes: “Here’s Donatello, and Michelangelo, and Leonardo, and Raphael. And Arnold Lobel… And James Marshall…” Music to my ears.
The real superheroes
