Not too long ago, my four-year-old daughter Arianna was struggling with a simple math problem in pre-kindergarten.
To help her with the concept of addition, I formulated the problem in a different way and asked her, “If you hold three apples on one hand and four apples on the other hand, how many apples do you hold in total?”
Without hesitation, she replied, “Two!”
Trying to keep calm, I put on a sweet smile and asked her, “And why is that, honey?”
“My hands are too tiny. I can only hold one apple per hand!”
