Excerpts from Little Book of Kids Talk   &
by Nanette Newman

I purchased this charming little book the other day for $5 Australian. It is one of those delightful pocket-sized books you can just pick up and flick through whenever you have a few spare moments.

The book contains a collection of thoughts & statements made by children of various ages on a wide range of topics such as God, love, school, parents, friends, pets, funerals, politicians and the world-at-large. These have been printed in the kids' own handwriting and spelling which adds greatly to the overall charm of the book. At five bucks it is a real bargain. Food for the soul. I laughed out loud as I read a few pages standing at the bustop on my way home from my shopping excursion. Kids say things that would never occur to an adult in a thousand years.

Here are a few of my favourite selections (you'll just have to imagine how they appear on small pages in the original handwriting ... {Spelling mistakes are NOT typos :) }

Love is important becaus if people did not love each other there wouldn't be any people

I sometimes think I love Everybody and Everything But I know I don't
