"Truman" is Helen's neighbor. He's a couple years younger than Helen, and is often hanging around Martha's house to escape from all the babies at his house. His mom runs a home day care center. Truman is a really smart kid, and he's also a little fussy and fearful (whatever you do, don't tell him there's a bug in the room!). But mostly, he's curious and excited about knowledge." -description from PBS website-->
