Is it inattention from others that makes us vague and distant? A scene from a restaurant.
A man ruined by the Depression makes one final grasp at the life he once led.
But how was that possible? They were just silly stories to entertain babies. They had to be. Vespa knew she could not go to the Tustan industrial district, a mere 1000 miles away, or she would die of suffocation.
Kanika G started writing to entertain her 2 year old daughter, by writing stories with characters her daughter can relate to.She uses simple everyday experiences as plots for the stories, while her daughter helps her in selecting pictures and provides constructive criticism, with this she was able to rewrite, exclude parts of the book where kanika finds her daughter looks bored. her daughter encourages her to write more stories and loves being involved

Further story-building work is also possible. A fun variant is to ask the students to write their own stories using characters ‘borrowed’ from the original story. Or students may be asked to break the story down into its component parts and characters, describe them and then find modern equivalents for a contemporary setting.
Poetry is also included with texts from a variety of poets. For example, the popular poem Orange Juice by Michael Rosen is an easy-to-read poem and provides humorous language practice at a lower level, and could even be used as a model for students to create their own poetry (see also the corresponding BritLit kit).
