?Little kids are innocent by nature, and by nature, they say things that are innocent. These comments are not malice or mean in context, but are made out of purity and free spirit, just as adults are at heart. Adults remain children at heart. And sometimes, when no one is looking, even they can be seen drawing outside the lines.? This is an excerpt taken from the article ?Kids Say the Darnedest Things,? written by Alison Swade, News Editor for The Leader, an award-winning student newspaper at Elmhurst College, Illinois. As children develop with their friends and families, they learn to speak and write appropriately, depending on positive or negative feedbacks they receive. It is important to capture their sincere and honest thoughts. In this book of poetries, the young Yu children express the'selves exactly as they see and question life. There are no restrictions, no rights or wrongs, only pure and good intention. As adults, we often reminisce about our childhood memories; how enjoyable it was just to eat ice cream without worrying about adding inches; or how fast or high we can run and jump without aches and pains. The good ?old? days, so to speak, in truth, is really the good ?young? days. Children grow up in a blink of an eye. To be able to express their hearts and souls in poetries is timeless and everlasting. What a gift!
