I remember watching Thomas & Friends as a child, with Edward Helps Out being one of them. I still watch Thomas & Friends to this day. Thomas & Friends was indeed one of my fondest memories. My very favorite cartoons as a child were Thomas & Friends, Arthur, Sesame Street, SpongeBob, Barney and Teletubbies. I think childhood is crucial because children learn all about the world around them as they adapt to it. People have studied it so they know how children in this day and age think. I wanted to take this course because I'm teaching kindergarten after college.
