“What Can I Do?: My Journal,” Friend, Aug. 1990, 32
My mother gave me a book with empty pages inside it. I’m going to do a picture book about me. Mom calls it a journal.
After I draw a picture of me, I’m going to draw pictures of everyone in my family, even our dog, Scruffy. I also want to draw pictures of things that I like.
I can’t write yet, so Mother is going to write down important things that happen to me.
My picture book will help me remember what I was doing and thinking when I was four years old. Someday when I’m a mother, I can share my journal with my children.
