How many chips could a woodchick chuck? Don't know, but the new layer of cushioning woodchips on the playground was a big hit with the slippery-sliders. Having a truck dump woodchips was a tongue-twisting delight for connoisseurs of preschool language.
It took staff and volunteers many weekend wheelbarrow hours to shovel, move, and rake the thick layer of cushioning chips. It was hard work, and I was not there, off reading book reviews instead.
