A Five-Year Old’s First Tale

By Holly Lisle

Okay, I’m ridiculously proud of the fact that my five-year-old sat in bed before the rest of the household was up and moving and wrote his first story. He calls it, “Why Homeschooling Is Great.”

It goes:

“I now vat 2+2=4. I now vat tooys are the bst.”

It’s not long. The spelling is a little shaky. But as a spontaneous first literary effort by a kid who’s just learning to read, I think it’s pretty wonderful.
