As we were getting drinks one day, a little girl said, "Mrs. Noser, when this fountain runs out of water, can you fill it with Kool-Aid?"
It is no secret that a group of five-year-olds have the ability to provide an interesting and entertaining perspective on life. Just ask Carol Porter Noser, a veteran kindergarten teacher who for thirty years listened in on the amusing and endearing comments made by her students.
Noser considers teaching young children to be one of the best jobs in the world. After one of her students asked her one day, "Do you have a job?" and another asked her, "Do you work?" she soon realized that they all instinctively knew she loved to teach. From early on, Noser jotted down the silly, sad, and funny comments her students made, eventually compiling a collection after she retired. As she shares one witty anecdote after another, she provides a glimpse into the very active and imaginative minds of five-year-olds who never let anyone forget how smart they really are about what is important in life.
From rather open discussions about their family, to the misuse of words, to questions about God, the children profiled in Kindergarten Conversations share their innocent and honest views of the world.
