Riley has been writing a book for the last week or so. She isn't known for her follow-through, so I stayed out of it! Today, she brought her finished product to me! This is a story about Molly, and her desire to do a triple spin in a skating competition. It was very hard for her, but she didn't give up, and in the end she was able to do it!
It is a wonderful little story! About 8 pages long, but full of dialogue and description! The language she uses is amazing, and I would like to say, reflective of the quality literature she has been exposed to! She also included illustrations!
I just adore this book! It's messy, and desperately needs attention in the areas of spelling, punctuation, and I'm wondering if the child has ever heard of capital letters! But I am not touching a thing! I absolutely, positively ADORE it!
When I finished reading, Austin said, "Are you going to cry? You look like you're going to cry!" I really felt that way, too! I was so impressed with her story! I'm going to try to type up a few excerpts later on! :)
And Riley announced tonight that she wants to be an author when she grows up!
