If you have ever been around children, you know they say some pretty hilarious things and have a large imagination. After being in education for 34 years, Edith Wagner Harrison wrote many stories and sayings that her students would say. These stories also include Terry Jane Wolf, who worked alongside Harrison and provides humor with her “real cowgirl” ways.
