It’s Friday, which means it’s a day to Celebrate Benji!
This is a pretty incredible fact for this little boy…because the act of reading and writing are both very challenging for him.
This summer he told me he wanted to write a story. So he got lots of paper and colored pencils and he drew intensely while he narrated the story to himself. I sat on the couch, listening, my heart full.
When he was done drawing, he told me the story again and I wrote it down. Then I sewed the book with string.
Then we read it over and over again together–his very own story.
(I secretly think he gets it from me…and it makes me really happy).
