Story Time with Little Ginger

I recently came across a folder my mom had kept of some of my school-age drawings, stories, awards and various certificates.  The best pieces were those I created in my early years of elementary school.  I was definitely the creative child who liked to write and draw.  I can remember being excited in Language Arts class when we had free writing time.  I would come up with stories I thought were amazing at the time, but clearly I was just an over imaginative child.  My teachers, as well as my parents always encouraged me though - regardless of what I came up with.  Perhaps they were planting a seed that would grow later in life when I rediscovered my passion for story-telling.

I thought some of these were too good not to share on the blog.  The following was created in 1988, when I was in the first grade.  Enjoy story time with Little Ginger!

My cover art skills are quite amazing, don't you think?

Clearly I loved pizza as a child and felt the need to write a story about it.

My spelling wasn't the best, but check out that illustration!

Every story book needs an ending page :)


  1. OMG I JUST DIED OF ADORABLE! That was wayyyy too cute. Oh man, and the story about the fish and magic. Aw.

    And word. Pizza is the best ever, or so says adult April.

  2. Aww! This is too adorable! This makes me want to look around my house for some stories I wrote when I was little! Thanks for sharing!


  3. Aw Ginger that is the cutest thing EVER! I didn't actually get into writing and drawing until I was much older but these are precious!

  4. Hahahaha I really love the end page :)

  5. Cutest thing EVER!! What a great thing to find and relive :)

  6. Oh my word! There is so much cuteness! The fish story was so adorable and I loved all the little drawings. Little Katelyn's drawings of people always looked like majorly deformed birds so I give you props for making your people actually look like people!

  7. Little Ginger = the cutest ever! <3 this, G! :)

  8. Ginger, you were SO CUTE! It sounds like you were definitely one imaginative kid ;) You're making me want to go back and see if I can find any remnants of stuff like this from my own childhood!

  9. Ginger, you were so adorable! I love this so much, you just filled my cute quota for the whole day! ♥
