Thought of Today: June 09, 2017 at 02:36PM

“How pathetic it is that such products [Baby Einstein, Classical Baby, Etc…] now appeal to a huge market of people who do not understand that the way to introduce children to music is by playing good music, uninterrupted by video clowns, at home; the way to introduce poetry is by reciting or reading it at bedtime; and the way to instill an appreciation of beauty is not bombard a toddler with screen images of Monet’s Giverny, but to introduce her to the real sights and scents of a garden.” Susan Jacoby
