I posted the following conversation on my Facebook page but I felt it deserved a wider audience so I’m posting it here as well. It’s a conversation I had with one of the kindergarten children on their latest visit to the library.
“How many are you?” she asked me.
“How many, what, am I? I replied a little perplexed.
“How many are you?”
“Well…how many are you?”
“I’m four. How many are you?”
“Oh, I’m more than four. Lots and lots more than four,” which seemed to satisfy her curiosity!
