My favorite recent podcast is The History of the English podcast, and it's just amazing how much disconnect there is between spelling and pronunciation due to so many little changes through time. Crismis makes perfect sense, actually.
Because there was a time when "light" was pronounced "lich-te" and "nightingale" was pronounced "nig-hickten-gae-la." :)
This is SO inspiring! Children, imagination, creativity, joy - this is what is needed now and forever. LOVE this!
I saw this on the news. Just incredible. I love how the library embraced and supported him.His drawing in that picture was impressive.
I want to read this book!!
Terrific find, made my day!!!
