Chef Chlorophyll

Last night at dinner Fredrik told us what he had learned in school, about Chef Chlorophyll. Chef Chlorophyll's kitchen is inside of leaves. He mixes sunlight with carbon dioxide from the air and produces sugar and oxygen for us to breath. Isn't that a great story! Next year, in the third grade, he will learn about evolution. Teaching evolution is no big deal here, not even a little deal. Swedish schools are great. I gave Fredrik some maple syrup on his yoghurt this morning to reinforce the idea of sugar coming from trees. I told him that Chef Chlorophyll makes wood too.
