Last fall Grace's class worked on writing books about their families. Each student was given the assignment to share about their family, and share three reasons why their family is special. Over several weeks I heard about each step of the process- brainstorming, compiling, organizing, drafting, re-working, editing, illustrating, and finally, binding. She absolutely loved it, but kept the content TOP SECRET so we would be surprised when we saw the books at conferences.
The night of conferences came, and as I flipped through those pages, tears filled my eyes because, well, my daughter is beautiful and reading about our family through her eyes was precious.
The books were finally sent home last week. You can read it below (press pause to stop the slideshow.)
