Max has been working very hard on authoring his first book. His teacher sent home this "make your own book" book for him on Valentine's day. He knew straight away what he wanted to write about. Starting at the front of the year, a big lot near our house has been transforming into a new Whole Foods Market. While it will be great to have a Whole Foods a few minute walk from our house, Max has loved, loved, loved all the construction that has been going on. Each day, as the weather has cooperated, we have taken a walk to see the diggers. It was only natural Max would want to write about the construction.
He named his book: "The Diggers"
He worked during speech therapy each week to create a page with a photo and a few words about the picture he chose to go with each page.
|I GO see the diggers with MOM and DAD.|
|Daddy would take a break at lunch, or after his work day to go see the diggers with Max.|
|I see OFFICIALS (workers) there.|
|When the workers saw Max visiting, they would sometimes put on a little extra show for him, and make the big snorting machines snort a little more, and swing a few times for him to see.|
|I am LITTLE next to the AWESOME crane.|
|He watched as they went from an open field to pouring concrete for the foundation and walls.|
| I can't find the photo Max used in his book, but this is a photo of him and his speech therapist, B. She would reward Max with a walk over to see the diggers when he did a great job talking during therapy.|
Max will continue to watch the new store go up, although the diggers have slowed considerably since they have the frame of the building up. Maybe his next book will be about all the other buildings that will go up around the store.
