Trumpet of the swan

The kids have been reading Trumpet of the Swan by EB White this week with daddy before bed. Yesterday I asked E to draw me a picture from the book. This is what she came up with. This is cropped from the original, as it wouldn't fit in my scanner. It's pencil and watercolors. She's enjoying a new set of watercolors she got for Christmas from her Aunt Rae. I watched her draw this, and I was amazed by how quickly she drew the reflections in the water, getting everything reversed perfectly. I would have had to turn it upside down to draw the reflections, thinking hard the whole time about how to get it right. She just did it quickly and perfectly :-)
