“The Three Questions” is based on a story by Leo Tolstoy, written and illustrated by Jon J. Muth. It is a must read for exploring what is most important with your child. Timeless, these questions have been pondered by great thinkers. When is the best time to do things? Who is the most important one? What is the right thing to do?
Big questions for young minds that are exploring what life is all about. Beautiful illustrations depict a thoughtful boy who relies on his animal friends to help him uncover the answers. A wise, Yoda-like turtle named Leo connects the dots for the boy with clarity and heart.
So here we are at the end of September. The air tonight has shifted, teasing us that fall might be right around the corner. On the news the weather station threatens the hottest weekend yet. And back to school schedules are settling into routines…
In San Diego (at this time of year) Mother Nature paints some of the most beautiful sunsets across our horizon. The beach at sunset is one my favorite places to ponder big questions. Another is at the dance studio.
We are delighted to welcome our students back to a year filled with creativity, imagination, and a nurturing environment that is ready to help these young people explore their unlimited potential. It you haven’t already reserved your place for this year’s annual holiday Nutcracker- Please join us today! The magic of the Performing Arts offers young people a dress rehearsal for life.
It all begins in the ballet class… where a child gets to practice how to slow down their mind, and ultimately find the answers to their greatest questions…
The most important one is always the one you are with. And the most important thing is to do good for the one who is standing at your side. For these, my dear boy, are the answers to what is most important in the world.”
