Child's Self-Discovery Peeling Back the Onion

A little girl standing still, attentively peers inside an onion-shaped wood play structure to see other children laughing, climbing and playing inside the onion. With a child's curiosity and self-discovery of inclusivity, she determines what it will take to make it inside the onion (ie. "peeling back the onion") to join this community of her peers.
