An interesting conversation...

At our school they encourage at home to do a reading website called Raz-Kids. Molly is REALLY, REALLY into Raz-Kids. There are times where we have to peel her away from the computer. Tonight Molly read a book entitled "Riding with Rosa Parks." Here's the conversation that Cameron and Molly had about the book...

Molly was explaining that back, long ago, there were people with brown faces and people with blond faces. The people with brown faces had to sit in the back of the bus. Rosa Parks sat in the front of the bus but she had a brown face. The bus driver said she had to sit in the back of the bus. Rosa Parks said NO!! (In a very loud, stern voice). She got arrested from the police. At the end of the story the brown faces can sit in the front thanks to Rosa Parks.

Cameron then explained to Molly that the person who got the laws changed about people with brown faces was Martin Luther King, Jr.

This conversation brought a smile to my face. Wow. My kiddos are really learning something.
