I was looking through some of the books on our bookshelf and came across a little journal book. I took a peak inside to see if anything was written in it and to my delight there were a couple of poems and stories written by a 6 year old Dallin.
Translation (for those that don’t read a 6 year old’s special spelling)
Me and Layton are alike.
He looks like me when I was little.
So he will look like me
When he is grown up.
I would say that is one fine piece of literature. There was also a little story in there.
Little dog wants to play. Big dog wants to play. Little dog wants to go on a walk. Big dog wants to go on a walk. It is cold. Little dog is warm. Big dog is not. Little dog found a coat. Now big dog is warm. The end.
Ok, so it is not exactly Newberry Award worthy, but to me it is some of the sweetest literature I have ever read. I love my Dallin.
