THE LIFE-CYCLE OF A CAMEL

Spent the last two days happily observing really excellent teachers at our local primary school and looking forward to another three to go. 

I can see now why so many writers have a background as a teacher.  As you listen to young children’s ideas, you can at any moment take a sidestep into a parallel universe, one that you could never have dreamt up for yourself. 

Who knew that a camel develops a hump only when it is pregnant, and that it then gives birth to a little camel which may one day in its turn become a teenage camel, then an adult, and then develop its own hump.  Or even, proudly, two!
