Mary Claire Pens Her First Story

2011 May 5
by Pamela

I knew this day was coming.  Mary Claire is constantly talking to herself, creating elaborate tales.  It was just a matter of time before she felt the need to write them down. 

Recently she came to me with a pen and paper, asking me to be her scribe.  First she had to create a book and get art supplies out to illustrate it, then she began her dictation.  I now present Mary Claire’s first story:

The Flower and the Dandelion

By Mary Claire Wright

A pink butterfly flew by.

The wind started to blow hard.  The leaves on the dandelion and the flower almost blew off!

The wind stopped blowing.  The dandelion and the flower stood straight for a minute.

A little girl came and picked the dandelion and the flower.  And the pink butterfly flew by.


I will cherish this book forever.

    Not bad at all for a 5 year old, and this being her first book! I see the signs of a great writer.
    Like mother, like daughter. ♥
