Could you please tell me where I can get a transcript of the reading of a story about teaching young children water colors? I heard it a few years ago on NPR; it was delightful.

It was not as much about teaching as it was a reflection of standing back in amazement when letting the kids go and paint whatever they wanted. I think the last line was “Cleaning up after them was the least I could do after all they had taught me”

All the best,

I think that's in Hoboken Fish & Chicago Whistle, published by Xlibris and available from or
