The Forest Telling Story of Anna Sonnichsen

Parents love it when their children follow in their footsteps. We try not to pressure them into liking the same things we do, but it tickles us when they do. Here's a book written by my daughter Anna, age 4. (I've included the text underneath just in case you can't read my tiny writing. And yes, that's my tiny writing. Please don't analyze it and tell me I'm crazy. I already know I'm crazy.)

The Forest Telling Story of Anna Sonnichsen

One day I went in the forest. I met an alligator. It was very evil so I fighted it.

I saw a giraffe and it was fighting the alligator.

I met a guy with a head and thumb. The head and thumb guy got dead.

Then I walked back home and had breakfast.



  1. Oh my gosh! How adorable is that story! Following in mommy's footsteps I see. Thanks for sharing!

  2. And all of that before breakfast! Would that my days were so productive:)

    Thanks for sharing, Amy - and for writing it, Anna!
