Our daughter is currently 6 years old, and reading and writing are 2 of her favorite things. She loves to read the Magic Treehouse books, and she will routinely write down any thoughts that pop into her head. Sometimes, she will even take notes on things while going about her normal business.
Tonight, she decided to write a story. She wrote it completely on her own. In fact, we were in a different room and didn’t even realize she was writing it until she was done. She’s incredibly proud of it, and as an aspiring writer myself, it almost brings a tear of joy to the eye. She’s going to start making copies of the story for all of our family members, and she even told me that she wants to make enough copies for the whole world. Therefore, I thought I would take this opportunity to help her spread the word.
I hereby present The Bigist Tomado. In order to add authenticity, I’ve included the spelling errors, but I have the correct word in parenthesis for the ones that might be tough to figure out. Please note that all of the commas and punctuation are also hers, so she already has a very good grasp on that. Princess and I both hope you enjoy.
