Our budding graphic novelist

Kate learned about speech bubbles from Elephant and Piggie. Sometimes she'll draw a bubble and then tell us what she want us to write in it, but she did these all by herself. There's a "no" and a "yes," and I think there's a "help" in there too, but it got a bit squished. (I'm not sure what's going on in this picture, but it seems to involve arguing.)

Kate continues to surprise us with her reading. The other night she sat down and read The Foot Book all the way through (not having seen it for a couple of years), and only needed help with maybe four words. She has some pretty proud parents. Unfortunately she can't go to Kindergarten until next year, since she has to be five before school starts.

Smarty pants. I love the speech bubbles. Can't wait to see what else she comes up with.

She's brilliant! It definitely looks like an arguement.

That's really wonderful she's reading at such an early age! Good for her... better yet, good for you guys for instilling a love for books right from the start!
