This afternoon after watching "Beverly Hills Chihuahua" at the local cinema we discovered a Wonderful Bookstore. They deal in New and Used books and a variety of local candles, candy and trinkets. Great place!
While we were there Connor's "Auntie Anja" saw some Wonderful little hard bound books that had a black and white line drawing cover and Blank pages!! She picked one up for both the boys. Connor got the Dinosaur one and Angus got the candy one. As soon as we got to Grandma's house they both began their stories. :)
I have included pictures of the partially finished novel titled "Connor's Book" created by Connor... (as well as a translation for those of you that do not read 5 year old very well. ;)
Connor’s Book -created by Connor, Nov 2008
Once upon a time a dinosaur ate candy all day long
He got a stomach ache
ow ow ow ow, growl growl.
Hi, are you sick?
I know what can help you
Feed you medicine
I feel great
Once upon a time a ghost see’d a haunted house
He went in, he saw a spooky witch
She had her magic wand
she zap her magic wand and turned the ghost into a frog.
A Ivy saw a person.
The Ivy hurt the person.
The person went to the doctor.
A Flower started blooming, it was Spring. It was Warm
