M iriam had received a new set of colored markers from Bubby. She was very excited. She took them to Morah’s playgroup in the morning where all the children had a grand time using the markers to draw pictures. Then Leeba and some of the others decided to draw on their sweaters at which point Morah quickly intervened and took the markers away. Afterward Morah told Miriam that the markers were so special it would be safer if the little girl would just keep them at home and in playgroup everyone would carry on using wax crayons for their pictures as usual.
