Openness and Reticence


Miriam rarely discusses her activities in kindergarten unless directly asked. I was surprised today when Miriam volunteered that her class had put on a little play. I asked what part she played.

Miriam I didn’t play any, Daddy.
Bob Oh, didn’t you want to?
Miriam I read the story and the others did it.
Bob Was it hard to read?
Miriam Yes, very hard, but I did it good.

It may be that Miriam’s taking her reader Friends Old and New to school had something to do with this selection.
