Here’s the first book review written (dictated) by my 6-year-old daughter (LW6), which first appeared on Reader Views Kids:
I loved, loved, loved this book! It has three parts – a story book that asks questions, and a journal, and a CD!
The pictures in the book are of real people, not animals. The boy reads this same book that I have. He imagines and talks about all the things that make him happy, all the good things that happen each day.
The book rhymes, and I can sing it so it matches the song on the CD. I answer the questions if Mom or Dad read them to me, or I can read them myself and answer them.
I like to draw in the journal – things that make me happy and proud. Sometimes it’s something that hasn’t happened, but it makes me happy to think about it.
I can listen to the CD in my room, or in the car. We can sing the song even if we aren’t playing the music!
This is a good book that my parents or brother or sister can read to me. A lot of the words I can read by myself, and I can sing the “What Went Right Today” song when I look at it.
Note from Dawn: This is a 3-piece set – the hardcover book includes a music CD with the lyrics/text. There is also a spiral-bound journal which asks on each left-side page: What went right for me today? (with blank space to draw a picture), and on the right: What went right for (mother, father, grandfather, my brother(s) and sister(s), teachers, and friends) followed by blank lines, and What went right for me? with more blank lines. This has been so much fun for LW6 to think about herself and others, and to practice her writing/spelling skills as well!
