It is often said that ‘a picture is better than a thousand words’. These illustrations are used to kindle the imaginations of the children. The bright colors capture their attention. The messes made by Mr. Beedy help explain scientific concepts. When we plant seeds of information in young hearts and minds, we never know how bountiful a harvest it will bring.
