Days and Preschool Days, Too:
A precocious preschool
girl asked if she could borrow my Disney songbooks to "play school".
Consenting, I watched her drill a small contingent of younger children,
marching them from place to place in the play yard. At each new location
she would tell them to sit down. "School starts in sixteen minutes!"
she would say. The children would open their books as she sternly admonished
them to do their lessons. Then, in a little while, she would snap shut
her own book with the command to her 'students', "Class Just Missed!"
