Tongginator's Trip To China

In January, all of the students at the Tongginator's elementary school were given the opportunity to write a short story, whether it be fiction or non-fiction, so that the Parent-Teacher Association could "publish" these stories. The bound books arrived last month, which gave the children several weeks to illustrate their stories before sharing them with their classmates and parents. The Tongginator's class shared their stories this past Friday, and all I can say is "perfect timing."

Here's why...

the "Meet the Author" page before the Tongginator
began reading her story aloud to the audience


One week to go....

(Oh, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Tonggu Grammy!)

Are you kidding me?? That is like the coolest book ever! Can I borrow it and put my kids name on it instead?....ya know cuz they are boys.....so if they wrote it, it would say something like, "We went to China. I ate food, I love my brother. I ate food. I ate food. The end." I love her detail..and her heart! {PS It is obvious her momma has prepared her well, you go girl!}

I don't know what I loved more--that the first airplane looked like a centipede or that she knows she can only hold Mei Mei while sitting on the couch!
Great job, Tongginator!
