Comment:    Re: SHK 19.0395 Five-year-olds to Study Shakespeare

Well now, here's a _thoroly_ thinking person, a pragmatist, amongst us!  [I must 
remember that on this list, as opposed to all the other lists I'm on, I must 
state clearly that I am NOT being ironic. So I say now: I really mean wot I've 
just said. And I want to compliment Geralyn Horton.] My thanks to her for 
reminding those of us who have known from observation of our own or other 
children or from our own experience---the deep joy, curiosity, and sustained 
memory derived from reading "mystery" words and works.

How could we have thought it otherwise?

Best,
Judy
