Now it's my turn to share my "bad" first attempt at writing a picture book. I was in grade two and seven years old when I wrote this masterpiece. I couldn't tell you now what inspired the story, but I had decided I wanted to write a book, so I sat down with a cracker box, some paper, and tape and made myself a book. Then, once my book was assembled, I set to work on the story. This is not the best way to write a book as you'll see why later.
