In the midst of a global pandemic, climate crisis, and racial injustice, this image showed up today. This little two year old LOVES his book, ?The Bear in the Blueberry? and listens to it every night. He took the ?bear fact? about how the bears eat blueberries with their ?diastema? and decided to do the same. He also has a small gap in the back of his mouth awaiting his second molars. So now he attempts to eat blueberries like bears, stripping them off the branch.
He lives in Georgia where the blueberries are far ahead of Alaska. I wonder how many children around my home town will be seen in the bushes pulling berries off with their teeth!!
