The other day, while recuperating from a bout of stomach flu, my 4.5 year old gal actually "wrote" a "book"!
She took a stack of post-its, and started to doodle on it. Then she asked me how to write a certain sentence, and painstakingly copied down the sentence I wrote for her. After a whole afternoon, this is the "book" she produced.
Title: The Girl Can Change
By Si Bin Rui
Hi, my (name) is Areaia.
The girl is in the toilet.
This is the girl's shirt.
Now the girl is a little kid.
Looks like the girl is a Princess.
A girl needs (indecipherable handwriting)...
I swear I didn't influence her at all in what she wrote. I really don't know how she came up with these.
It seems to have quite a (semi) coherent storyline of a girl changing her clothes.
The funniest was the "The End" page. I was trying to encourage her to end her book-writing and go take a nap. So I asked her to write "The End". She said, "ok, ok" and proceeded to write large capital letters "D" and "N".
