It's Real Kids Thursday. You know, we adults are pretty used to the way the world works. In general, we're on autopilot a lot of the time. Not young children. So much is new for them. That means that they frequently have to trust the judgment of others. When parents take children to the doctor's office, it is usually pretty stressful. A child has to trust his parents, even though it seems like a really, really bad idea. Imagine being clueless about health and preventive treatments and some giant person wants you to hold still while they hurt you. Ow. Sometimes, picture books can try to help make sense of this crazy world. And sometimes playing about it can help you cope. Especially when you have a trusting baby sister to bandage up.
