Balloon and the Bird, By Mia

One of the great things about summertime for a six-year-old is that there's a built-in, mid-day rest time while the baby sleeps.  Time to play quietly, watch a video, color a picture...

or write and illustrate a book!

Like this one:  Balloon and the Bird, By Mia 

A balloon.

A bird found the balloon.

It brought it to the nest.

It tied it on the nest.

(Ed. note: Mama bird is proud of herself!)

The end!

Side note: Mia has written a book before I have.  I would be jealous if I weren't so proud.  Picture me like that puffed-up mama bird, up there.  Proud :)


  1. WOW! Im totally impressed! The drawings are great and the story is cute! I would be proud too!

  2. She is quite the artist, and a little writer just like her momma!! So cute!

  3. That's a pretty book, Mia! I think it looks like the birds are getting their nest ready for a party!

    This is what Katherine says: "I really liked the book you wrote about the balloon and the bird. It was a nice book and a pretty book. You're good at writing!"

  4. I LOVE this!!!! She's talented!

  5. That is FABULOUS for 6-years old!!!


Hmm...And how did that make you FEEL?
