My 6-year-old granddaughter, Belle, gave me this for my birthday.
how to make a book
1. Sloppy coppy
3. dro pickshers
4. dummy (osomy)*
5. read over
7. love the book or don't love the book
*Belle felt that "dummy" was mean and proposed "osomy"—her spelling of "awesome-y"—as an alternative.
She added #7 just for me, because I'm a "puplisher." If there is anything about the whole process that is missing from this list, I don't know what it is.
"love the book or don't love the book" are words to live by.
And that's all she wrote.
