Our little author

Here is a picture book that E was inspired to write last week. She is still in the process of writing her chapter book, and I can't wait to share that with you when she's done.

This one is about a little mouse who was really brave and went next door to visit an elephant and they became friends.
I didn't have time to scan all the pages, but here a few samples. I especially love the 'about the author' page at the end.

So adorable! What a neat little book - you have an artist/writer in the making. I love the author bio at the end - perfect

Cute! I love it:) Alaithia has to write a story for English today & I'm just praying my way thru this assignment. She loves to type stories, but in this assignment, she's supposed to come up with a problem, and she doesn't want to give her character a problem. I do think this may be asking a bit much for kids this age. Sigh. I might just throw the assignment out the window and let her write whatever.

I am always in awe of what E chooses to illustrate and what she leaves out -- a very important thing for an artist to know. Her composition is so good. I can't wait to read the whole book.
