I Like to Look For…
Written by: Miriam Roth
Illustrated by: Ora Ayal
Children learn anytime, anywhere: They learn when they look for something they’ve lost, as well as when they happen to find something else along the way. They learn they can be sorry for what they’ve lost, and soon cheer up, finding joy and interest in something new and unexpected.
The heart of the wise gains knowledge
When your heart and eyes are open, you can learn from a host of possibilities the world has to offer.
