Le livre du jour: An important book

My book review today is one that my daughter who is 6 made the other day.

I am so excited about this because it was the first time she just wrote it out without asking how to spell the words.  Granted there are a ton of misspelled words but the fact that she sounded them out wrote them herself is so sweet.

Her book is about her doll who has lovely hair of pink and tan.  The doll has a party and likes to jump and run.  So sweet and great pictures to boot!  (She even glued some of the dolls hair to the book).

I bound it for her with a stapler and funny little thing she is, she is reading/writing from right to left…I think she won’t master the correct way until first grade.  For now, I am happy that she enjoys reading and writing as well as crafting together a book.

Check out her creation below:

cover reads: An important book















page 2: she has beautiful hair. It is pink and tan. This is her hair (has hair glued to page)















Page 3: (Not only is she a right to left writer she happens to write bottom to top) She is going for a walk with her mom and daddy.


page4: she is having a party. page5: she likes to play with friends and flowers and dancing.














she likes to jump and run.














I am not sure if I should write the correct words underneath it for her or just smile and tell her she did a great job?  Any ideas?

    No need to correct her, that will come in time. If she asks, be honest, but let her ask. Celebrate her hard work and courage to write such a fantastic story all by herself! (It sounds like you already have.) 🙂 And keep that book so she can see it when she’s older.

    I LOVE kindergarten spelling. I love seeing how kids interpret our silly language that often makes no sense.

    Haley also made books backwards in kindergarten. There must be something developmental about it, but I can’t figure it out.

    Thanks Marisa…I so want to put an “interpretation” underneath her words but remember something you posted on beginning readers and so refrained!

    It is so fun seeing them develop. And it is happening so fast! I cannot wait to see what first grade will bring 😀
