The last time I was with my grandchildren, my 4-year old grand-daughter dictated and drew illustrations for a story. I told her I would make it into a book for her. This is a child that never forgets anything, so I decided I'd better get it done! So here it is, "The Cat That Lost It's Balance... Forever."
(The illustrations are adapted classic children's illustrations, enhanced by Katie's drawings.)
Is my budding author grand-daughter clever, or what? This whole story is, I believe, based on a dance class she is taking. I'm betting she and other little dancers quite often 'lose their balance,' which she pronounces 'valance' as in 'vallerina' and her 'vallet' class.
I love Siren, and Little Laura cracks me up! Notice the plate of spaghetti and meatballs, and that the bed has been tided up the second time she drew it. The figure on the bed is her Elmo doll. I'm sorry, but sometimes grandmothers just have to revel in CUTE!
