The setting is a cheerful nursery school room bustling with activity and live l y three and four year old children. Sally, Tom, and Dick are building with blocks and are busily engaged in conversation regarding who is "boss" of the project.
"I'm the boss," states Sally emphatically.
''No, I'm the boss." retorts Dick with just as much enthusiasm.
"Did you know that God is boss of the whole world?" questions Tom thoughtfully. So we see one more example of the tremendous task of reaching for and of gathering in facts and experiences in the environment in order to create some semblance of order in the overwhelming sphere known as the world of the preschooler.
