Creative Tales for Your Itty Bitty

Story Lines Books: My Grandma is a Superhero

I always look forward to Wednesdays because it’s the one day a week that I get one-on-one time with my daughter, Vivien (4).  And if you know Vivi, you know that she has such an imagination!  She’s so creative, loves to paint and build things, and loves making up stories- oh the stories she has told others!

My little budding artist, we have exhausted every handprint, footprint, painting, leaf-rubbing, bead-stringing project!  So, when we received the new “Story Lines” books at the store, I was beyond ecstatic!  Basically, Vivien would be able to illustrate her very own book, from cover to cover!  (We chose “Grandma is a Superhero”, since Grandparents Day was right around the corner).  She would be able to make her Mim into a cape-wearing, cookie baking, cat- rescuing super hero!

My Grandma is a Superhero Book

Each page has text at the top, leaving the rest of the blank page to create her illustration.  We have an arsenal of art supplies, so I readied her craft table with supplies and utensils and let her have at it!  Right now, she is obsessed with creating collages and using markers, so with the exception of a sticker or two, that’s what she used to create “Mim’s” book.  I read each page aloud to her and she went to work!   Of course, I offered suggestions to help her out every now and then, and those suggestions were completely rebuffed!  (It has to be HER idea!).

She was so proud to give her one-of-a-kind creation to her Grandmother!  We’ve already taken home “Dad Can Do Anything” for her dad's upcoming birthday.  I can’t wait to see her next little creation!
