... block that is.
My six year old suddenly has a new hobby. Writing books or maybe I should say creating books since they are heavy on pictures and light on words. Mostly there are about animals though he has started one about pirates.
The first as was all about animals. Here are a few shots.
His caption reads The Dolphin, or at least it does by his idea of phonics.
Then there is his turkey
As a sequel to the animal book he made one all about his favorite animal ... sharks. Here is my favorite page.
His penciled words are hard to read in the picture but it reads Shrks et met which translates to Sharks eat meat.
See he's like me in more ways than one. A writer and a carnivore at heart.
I wish i could find his pirate book to show you some of those pages but like a true writer he doesn't like anyone to see the early stages. actually he's probably just hidden his notebook so his brother doesn't use any pages, but nevertheless I can't find it.
I am proud to see him working so hard on his books but I got quit the chuckle the other morning. he got up early, a rarity for him, so that he could work on his book before school but when it came time to leave he hadn't gotten done as much as he wanted.
I made him put away his crayons and work in progress and he immediately started crying. through big, tear-filled eyes he whimpered, "But I don't wanna go to school today. I just wanna stay home and work on my book."
As I grabbed my keys to head off to work I simply said, "Me too buddy. Me too."
