Illustory

When Little Miss C was 5 years old, we gave her an Illustory Kit for Christmas. With her artistic spirit and unbridaled imagination, we thought she might enjoy publishing her own story. We were not mistaken. She eagerly penned her first book, a wild adventure involving "Princess C" and "King Daddy". Since then, we have purchased a kit for her every Christmas. 

They are hilarious to read, with their fractured plots and raw emotion {she really loves her daddy!} but more than that, they serve as a wonderful journal of sorts. They perfectly encapsulate her interests for the year, her current level of artistic skill and reading/writing ability. As her homeschool assignment yesterday, she completed her third book. We can hardly wait for the finished version to arrive in the mail.

That is fantastic! When I was a kid I spent hours upon hours illustrating and composing my own stories. I love how you're archiving these as books!

Great idea. She'll treasure those as an adult...as will her own kids!

Our daughter got this same gift for Christmas this year from a Grammy. She was thrilled and I can't wait to see how her story turns out.
