A few weeks ago, Annabel was her classroom’s Star of the Week. This required her to make an “all about me” poster that she had to describe in front of her whole class.
I thought that was the extent of it, but it turns out Annabel’s classmates also made her a book…and it’s so cute and hilarious. It’s probably one of my favorite things she’s brought home so far.
I know some of these sentences were prompted by the teacher, but they are still so adorable.
A dragon! That’s legit.
She is respectful.
This kid is going places:
I can’t even draw like that! Amazing.
A few kids commented on her appearance, but I was glad to see it wasn’t the only thing they wrote about her.
I like the cat ears headband, nice detail.
This one is my favorite, I will happily hand over this duty:
“You have long hair. I will braid your hair.”
I read all of these to Annabel, and she said, “Wow, I feel so special! They all said such nice things! They all must really like me!”
Elementary school is awesome. I wish they would always be this nice to each other.
That’s awesome! To be in elementary school when everyone is your best friend, and then they grow up and middle and high school are the toughest. Yes to your last sentence. The artwork is amazing for kindergarten children.

What a treasure. Would it be wrong to ask HR if we could institute “Star of the Week” here at work (complete with souvenir book filled with what your co-workers think of you? Yep, it’d be wrong.
Marjorie Steele says:
what an awesome keepsake! and a self esteem builder for sure. Annie’s is lucky to have such great friends. Some great pictures in there too!
Oh how sweet and lovely. I’m referring to both Annabel and the writings of her friends. We have a senior in high school and 7th grader. I miss sweet Kindergarten but it is all good.
So cute! Some of those pages must have been done by the first grade students, right? If not, these are some advanced K kids! And either way, I’m pretty sure that dragon artist with the adjectives and commas in his/her writing (my former teacher senses tell me that student is a girl but don’t want to assume) is gifted!
Love this! I received a book similiar to this when I was in kindergarten. I was moving to a different state however; and received it as a parting gift. I still have it!
