By Shontia and Jayvon Johnson
Exploration is the highest form of discovery for PJ these days. Exposing him to the “real world” environments and occasions has offered him additional vocabulary and analytical thinking.

The opportunity to touch and feel actual equipment, gadgets and items associated with fire trucks, airplanes and “big people” objects, has given Parker freedom to add great value to his young life and desire to know more! We watched as his eyes lit up in excitement and eagerness.
