The Praying Mantis and the Boy

A Praying Mantis perched on a child's shoulder.

Z. is my friend. Seeing the world through the eyes of someone who is not quite three is wonderous. We don’t really know what the mantis is thinking: its facial expression doesn’t change to reflect its opinion of Z’s shoulder.

Z’s dad writes blog that shows a similar sense of wonder at times, mixed with the emotions one might expect from his navigating an unaccustomed culture. He is a Brit and an American citizen; hence  almost-american.com

There are lots of posts featuring  Z.  Enjoy!
