This Christmas I unwrapped a thoughtful gift from my wife's sister and her husband (Thanks, Lynne and Bill!) that may remind people of the hard work kindergarten teachers and their students do: recognize text and decode it.
The gift, a deck of 48 knowledge cards from Pomegranate Press, reminds me of the challenges faced by a five year-old in kindergarten these days. Learning to read is actually much much harder than the puzzles in this deck.
I made up my own cryptogram of a saying that has helped me through difficult classroom moments. It's one of my favorite sayings. I hope you'll try.
The first person to e-mail me the correct answer to this will get a free copy of my Deeply Beautiful CD to keep or give away.*** E-mail your answer to firstname.lastname@example.org and include a mailing address so I can send you your prize.
***Winners have already been contacted and will receive their prizes in the mail. Still, I hope you'll have fun with working the puzzle. E-mail your answer for the fun of it as of Saturday forward. Thanks.
I'll post the answer January 3.
