We’re reading The Wonderful Wizard of Oz out loud now and a passage in the book brings up an interesting question. The Tin Woodman and the Scarecrow are having a discussion about which would be better to have, a heart or brains:
“oh, I see; ” said the Tin Woodman. “But, after all, brains are not the best things in the world.”
“Have you any?” enquired the Scarecrow.
“No, my head is quite empty,” answered the Woodman; “but once I had brains, and a heart also; so, having tried them both, I should much rather have a heart.”
So, what’s your choice? Would you rather have brains or a heart? Or, like me, is the question so hard you just need some chocolate cake to take away the pain? Take my poll below: (Oh, and I’d tell you my 5yo’s answer to the question, but it was so sweet and mother-pride giving, that you wouldn’t believe me if I told you what she said.)
