page 6, Octi the Octipus

The End
Thank  you, Tati and Gabi for your wonderful story.
This story, written by Tati and Gaby, shows us (adult writers) what a first grader may deem important in the literature that they read and stories they write.  The story includes danger, friendship, a clever heroine, no adult character, and science (Octi's black ink is used to blind the shark from being aware that Swimy had fallen in the water while fishing). 

The young authors are aware of the foundational structure of a good story: main characters, setting, a problem, solution, and an ending.  The story flows.

Studying a child's illustrated story, may help point a writer in the right creative direction.
