Yoshi went to the castle and rescued Peach from Bowser. Mario joined in." That is the summary of the story that Keegan, my 6 year old grandson dictated to me for publication, on my computer. It started with two play figures set up in front of a castle made out of cardboard and boxes...and house plants for a jungle background.
I typed his story as he told it and was ready to put it with the pictures. He had another idea. He wanted the pictures printed and the text hand-written. The book had character. He was going to put it on his mini-book collection shelf at home, after he reads it to anyone who wants to hear it.
I believe Keegan will not forget all the stories he has dictated to me. The beauty of this is that he can read it himself easily, because the words are his own!
