One night to see the stars...

A child hasn’t always seen what we’ve seen, doesn’t always know what we know, so he might love to experience what for us is commonplace.

“I heard a comment from the mouth of an eight-year-old child which profoundly impressed me: ‘I would give anything to be able, one night, to see the stars.’ He had heard them being discussed but had never seen them.” Maria Montessori, From Childhood to Adolescence
