Children are very nice observers, and they will often perceive our slightest defects.

It is not enough to like good books.  You must be a good book yourself.

Francois Fenelon (1651-1715) was a French theologian, poet, and writer.  He has been widely remembered as the author of THE ADVENTURES OF TELEMACHUS.

  1. Yes, children are astute observers… not always nice, though. But always brutally honest! I remember one student looking at my fingernails that used to bend around the end of my fingers before I started strengthening them with an acrylic cover. He said, “Ooooooh, Mrs. Beekman, what is WRONG with your fingernails?” I started sitting on my hands!!
