I don't think this picture needs much explanation.
But allow me to set the scene for you.
A 5 year old boy who loves to read learns how to print his first and last name. Said 5 year old boy knows that is the requirement to get your very own, personal library card. He has a project due for school that requires a trip to the library. He begs, pleads and asks as patiently as a 5 year old boy can, if he can finally get his own library card now.
And so he does.
I don't know which of these things is finer - the sense of accomplishment and pride Alex felt, or the whole big world that was just opened up for him.
