Captivated

He is totally enthralled with this little toad that he found in his back yard, and would have played with it for hours I'm sure. It was obvious from the grin on his face that he was enjoying the experience of making contact with this little creature. He learned that it is fun to discover things of nature, but also important to set it free again. Very often we tend to forget that children derive the most pleasure from things that they find on their own, more than the latest toy or fad that they are constantly bombarded with on the TV. It was hard to say who was the more captivated, the boy, the toad, or me..........
