La Belle France

Le Petit brought this drawing home from After Care one afternoon last week:

Recognize it?

There's the Rhone, the Seine, the Rhine, and the Garonne.  I asked him about the Loire: he forgot. No matter: you can see the Pyrenees, the Massif Central, and the Ardennes, a row of round hills in the northeast.  Point A to point B traces the route from Paris to La Rochelle, where Le Petit likes to spend vacation with his grandparents.

As far as I know, there are no maps or atlases at After Care.  Familiar with Le Petit's geographical knowledge, I'm not entirely surprised he would draw this from memory. I scanned it at work and e-mailed it to my Dad.

"Good enough to get the downed pilots to the border!" he wrote back. I wouldn't doubt it.

That is really REALLY impressive. What a neat thing to be interested in (seriously, my boy could name 200 different Marvel and DC Comic Book heros/villans but forgets what city we live in).
