The kids were completing sentences about their mothers. One began:
When my mom goes shopping, she likes to buy ______________________________.
Of course, they all put "food". That's kind of cute--they assume their mothers love to go to the grocery store, since they do it so often. But one little girl wrote:
When my mom goes shopping, she likes to buy grapes and hot dogs.
See what I mean? Accurate or not, that creates an interesting picture in your mind.
Another sentence began:
My mom is the best mom ever, because she _______________________________.
Several children said "loves me" or "plays with me" or "cooks food for me." Which are all fine.
But one kid said:
My mom is the best mom ever, because she plays Tinkertoys with me.
Specific ... and charming!
Something to think about when revising--it's the details that add sparkle.
