It seems the Little Artist is a budding author now. She brought several of her creations with her yesterday, when she came to deliver Girl Scout cookies. (She's a "Daisy" scout--I didn't know they had scouting for such young girls, but it's great.) Her books all had 5-8 pages and a colored-paper cover with the title on it. She wrote every word herself. She has been writing stories for a while now, but she used to leave out the vowels, so she was the only one who could read them. She makes up her own spelling, which improves with every effort. Her people-drawing has really progressed. The detail in her pictures is amazing. One of her books is based on "High School Musical 2. There are up to three people on every page, who are recognizable throughout the book. Always a blue sky strip with sun at the top. A big box for the stage, a small box for the piano. A different style dress on each girl. She also had a book of fashions that she had made up, and a book of stars. She had just learned to make a 5-pointed star, so she created pages with different designs and stories for the stars. She just loves to make books. Where does this come from?
