In an effort to encourage our 4th grader to read more, we have agreed that we would do small photo sessions after each book. I know, I know, I haven't a real clue what I've gotten myself into, but I do know that she seems to be on board with the idea. So that said, last night we a spent little time putting together our girl's take on a new favorite character, Liesel in "The Book Thief". SG really embraced the idea of understanding the character and worked hard to invoke her own interpretation in the 20 minutes we had, all the while in our own, simple back yard. In addition, giving her contributions real credit truly gave her a noticeable confidence!
Next time, maybe we'll have even a little more fun and freedom with it. I am really hopeful this has struck a cord with our sweet chica! ~ B
