The Power of Writing

It is not that Hana is not creating anymore; on the contrary, she’s picking up the pace. However, she has suddenly (and finally) discovered writing, and the power of it; now she creates words, and stories, and entire books. Her teacher said it is related to the fact that she’s losing her teeth. Well, losing her teeth is something she is doing quite well. She’s got a pumpkin smile lately.

Here’s a collection of some of the stories.

A poetry book created for her mother’s birthday.
A story on a leprechaun and the pot of gold.
One day a leprechaun faun (found) a pot of gold. The leprechaun was happy. "I'm happy, I'm happy."
"No! No!," shouted the pot of gold. "I dout (don't) wat (want) to go.""I bowt (don't) want to go. I want to hav (have) a franb (friend). "
"I will B (be) your franb (friend)."
"You + wel (will?)."
The happy little pot.
The happy little pot.
The is is happy little pot
A book in which she learns the skills of sequential paragraphs (first, second, then, and finally). A book on ‘How To Draw A Cat’.
How to Draw a cat, by Hana N.
First you need a paper and pencil and eraser.
Get a paper and pencil and draw a head. Draw a body. Draw some hands and a tail and color the cat.
If you are alone, you can talk to the cat.
