100 years ago: A case of mirror writing

22 May 2018Registered users

On being asked in her Scripture class to draw the story of the “Three Wise Men,” she cried bitterly because she was unable to depict them walking towards the manger. Her effort shows the three figures walking away from the manger. She was encouraged by her teacher to use her right hand and a year later was able to write and draw normally with that hand. However, she preferred to use her left hand, and on leaving the infants’ school, her teacher began to re-educate her left hand with the result that she now, at the age of nine, draws and writes normally with both hands.
