TULSA, Okla., May 31 (UPI) -- An Oklahoma couple said their 6-year-old son, accepted into a program for gifted children, is better than a GPS device when they need directions.

Tracy and Brian Curtsinger of Verdigris said their son, Graham, who was recently one of only about 1,400 students ages 5-18 to be accepted into the Davidson Young Scholars Program, is a geography whiz whose expertise ranges from local roads to world capitals, the Tulsa (Okla.) World reported Monday.

"We would go places and he would start giving us directions," Tracy Curtsinger said. "You can tell him anywhere to go, and he can tell you how to get there."

"We're a family that says, 'Go play outside. Have fun,'" she said. "But he loves this."

The parents said Graham completed kindergarten and will start this fall in the gifted program at Remington Elementary in Tulsa.
