Brain Growth

Miss M read my most recent Books Bygone newspaper essay column this evening after supper.

For some reason, Miss M found "brain growth" highly amusing.

Here's what got her laughing:
... the questions must not be suppressed, because that means death to intelligence and to brain growth. ...
To which I said:
No grownup in his or her right mind wants to stifle the growth of children’s brains, and so we look to encyclopedias for intelligent answers for our children and ourselves.
