Creating a story book
Miss E loves to tell stories. She also loves for me to tell them back to her. I have the memory of a goldfish which causes much frustration for her!
After many lost stories, we decided to start writing them down. Miss E and I headed to the shops a while back and picked out a lary green exercise book, and we started creating.
She will tell me a story and I’ll write it down, leaving room for her to illustrate it.
The first ones I forgot to write dates, but I try and date them when I remember now. It’s really interesting to see the difference in the stories and their structure as her language and comprehension develops. Most of them are pretty rambling, but she loves to have all of them read back to her. I think it will be a really cute keepsake and I can’t wait until she starts writing in it herself…
