Colors, sounds, and children’s creative thoughts fill the world. Nothing can be taken for granted. We can imagine, investigate, and ask questions. Todi, the protagonist in the book, presents us and her exhausted father the diverse thinking and amazing diversity in our world. Even Janusz Korczak, a celebrated educator, had viewed the world this way – with wisdom, joy and wonderment.
… and the wise man is happy that there is day and night in the world, summer and winter, young and old… and that the colors of flowers and the eyes opf human beings are different… only he who dislikes thought will be disappointed by differences and angered by variety, for they cause man to think, to see and to understand.
