When my boy was young — way before he could speak — he loved jigsaw puzzles.
And he was fun to watch. I don’t think I ever saw him build the border first. [Guess that’s for beginners like me and his grandmother.] Sometimes he’d assemble them piece by piece, horizontally; other times vertically. But the day I saw him put it together with the picture face down, I was stunned.
My son’s preference: the gray “picture”
