Another Artist In The Family

So, Livi is following in the footsteps of her big sister and foraying into the world of children's books written by children. I literally have a small library of books that Hayley has written, and the other day, Livi informed me she had written a book. She just drew the pictures and told me the story as she showed it to me and she has changed it each time she's told it; but I do know for sure that it is about me, Hayley and the twins. But I must share it. She is very proud!! (As well she should be!!)

The Front Page. These are "Ws".
She is learning about the letter W in school right now.
Not too shabby if you ask me!

This is supposed to be me. Aren't I gorgeous?!

This is a self portrait.

This is Hayley and her.

This is the twins and her.

And this is all four of them. The girls that is.

I personally think it's Pulitzer prize material. What do you think?? Not too shabby for a four year old, eh?


Maine Mom said...

I love the book! And yes, you DO look gorgeous. :-) I love how she makes people. Very cute!

Dawn said...

I wish I could hear the story! Maybe you should write it down the next time she tells it to you! Very cute - love the curly hair on everyone.

Dawn said...

Oops - I looked again, and it appears that what I thought was curly hair was arms and hands - I love it. It appears that she ran out of steam on that last one - precious.

Needled Mom said...

Definitely potential. Does she have an agent already too? Be sure to keep those photos and you should write HER story on the back so you won't forget.

My kids love looking back at their old art work. Their children do too.

Happy Birthday! You and the girls look wonderful!

Linda said...

A belated Happy Birthday Kristen. Your header picture is just beautiful. What sweet girls you all are.
Yes - I do think I see a couple of Pulitzer's in the future. And to think they can illustrate their own books as well as write them.

Nancy said...

Happy Birthday... I hope it was a great one.

As you know, I taught Kindergarten for most of my 32 years of teaching, and yes, this book is a WINNER! Such precious memories... thanks for sharing!

She is so good! I love the story and find all children's art work amazing! You should laminate those and keep it for her.

Happy Birthday!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

groovyoldlady said...

Look at that - four years old and she's already been published!

Maybe I should rethink my writing strategies!

Happy Birthday, Kristen!
