This print responds to my concern for how Black children in particular, and children in general, are spoken to. Language is a psychological conditioner, use it with care. The water is the convenience, the transmitter, the eggs are the promise, leaves and roots speak of growing things. Providing them with the correct nutrients, a child's brain is like soil planted with care.
