Feeling that I may have exposed my daughter to a wide but limited range of music, I decided to expand her experiences with something new (for her). So, today we listened to, and enjoyed music from West Side Story, The Pretenders, Prince and Nirvana. Ever seen a six year old hear 'Smells like Teen Spirit' before? It's a wonderful thing.
At bedtime we did the same. Freya had been reading poems from her book, so I read her poems by Maya Angelou, Philip Larkin and whoever wrote 'The Song of the Loch Ness Monster.'
There will be much more of this.
