A person, place, or thing is what usually sparks those first memorable childhood impressions. Of course, we often do not study our newfound interests from the time of our personal enlightenment to adulthood, but early childhood interests are strong and they can have a powerful hold on us. Children usually show interest in many areas, though one interest usually resurfaces as they get older. Often, it seems this interest--usually one from childhood--is the one that leads to a profession. This free selection from Start Young! Early Childhood Science Activities also includes a Contents, Introduction, and Index section, along with a Quick Reference Chart.
