Memory box Monday

This is my new thing: Memory Box Monday. I'm going to start a series of all the funny finds I'm discovering in this memory box I found at home this weekend. I'll inaugurate the series with this, the photo documentary of a story written by myself--an 8-year-old genius (or not) in 1990. (with commentary)

(please note: the title is "The Bear Who Found the Best Present Ever" and I wrote next to it this message--"December 14, 17, 18, 1990, keep so I can read it to my kids"). Clearly I'll be reading this story to my children someday.

(above) the thought bubble says this: "Maybe someone will buy me for Christmas!" Wow, I was creative.
(above) somehow I was bright enough to draw this illustration from the inside viewpoint of the toy store so that the name on the window appeared backwards. Genius, I tell you.

That book is hilarious! I am glad you included the pics- it would not have given the full effect if you would have just explained it. I love this memory box Monday....I can't wait to see what treasures you will uncover to share with us next week! It makes me want to dig through my room at home to see what I can find :)

I love this! You are a genius. By the way, your 8 year old handwriting is better than mine is now.
