MAKING A LIST 

MAKING A LIST

The Commercial Appeal recently ran a column by Dr. Yvonne Fournier titled "Think creatively, critically when picking out "fun" toys." It begins rather ominously by asking the question, "What kind of educational toys will prepare our children for tomorrow?" and answering, "The message is clear: Our children will need to be more educated than any previous generation. More degrees will be required our children must learn how to speak with fluent, confident expression and learn how to listen to become collaborators in tomorrow's international economic workplace." So what exactly does Dr. Fournier suggest? "Pieces of wood in different shapes and sizes can become "the new architectural style," she writes. Fournier also says, "Kitchen utensils and cooking ingredients with a blank book can become "Frankenstein's favorite recipes." In other words, ask Santa for blocks and paper.
