First Book

August 28, 2009

AlphaBoy wanted to put paper together and fill them with words and animals.  I provided the handwriting and a brief drawing lesson.  He provided the words and the illustrations and is very proud of his first published book!

    I think that perhaps he is just setting us up for sequel. I for one want to know what happens to those boxy zebras..Are they from a two-dimensional planet? What about all the animals that he DIDN’T want to draw? Are they even now plotting a coup on the writer? Are the drawn elitest animals making the non-drawn animals feel snubbed by the obviously anti bird and fish bigotry being demonstrated in this book? Will it be banned from libraries as un-PC, or studied in future Hourgian-like Honors English classes as an early example of animistic exclusionist literature? Is that camel a Christ figure? There are just so many way to go with this. Definitely encourage “The Boy Who Drew Animals – part II”–with clift notes please!!

    Yes! Love it! This kind of creativity is what it’s all about and seems to fit perfectly with your list of yes’s and no’s from the earlier post. Soon you will be rich from writing a homeschool how to book for all those first time jittery homeschool moms 🙂
    Montessori said to let the child lead…okay so no off a cliff, but you know what I mean. It’s such a beautiful partnertship as you learn how to train up YOUR kids in the way the THEY should go…not the way that Bob and Suzy’s and Jim and Linda’s or Chin Ho’s kids should go. Hope it continues to go well and on those other days when the elusive “it” isn’t going as “it” should that you can remember it’s about you and him not “it” anyway 😉
