My Favorite Gift--A Story by Josie

This was for me and John from Josie. Here is the illustration and below, on the back, an explanation (artist's statement.)

Her mama said she did it all on her own without asking for spelling help. Her spelling is phonetic and rather Elizabethan in that a given word might have several different spellings.

I love her imagination and description.

This below is a Post-It note she made for John. It's Bailey with claws. Note the characteristic division of sun and sky.

Gotta luv the Elizabethan spelling.

I hope you're keeping all these treasures. Someday her own children will enjoy seeing them. She has a marvelous imagination !
