what children need...

"every child should have mud pies,
grasshoppers, waterbugs, tadpoles,
frogs and mud-turtles, elderberries,
wild strawberries, acorns, chestnuts,
trees to climb, brooks to wade,
water lilies, woodchucks, bats, bees,
butterflies, various animals to pet,
hay fields, pine-cones, rocks to roll,
sand, snakes, huckleberries, and hornets:

and any child who has been deprived of these
has been deprived of the best part of"

luther burbank-1920
