"What you thank?"

My five-year-old granddaughter wrote a book today. Twelve pages, she asked for a stapler to bind the pages together. On the last page she asked, “What you thank?” and drew lines under the question, telling her mom to write either Yes or No whether she liked it, leaving room for additional comments.

I know what she’s getting at. You work on a writing project, say a blog, and you hope first someone will read it, then that they will like what you wrote, preparing yourself as much for a negative response as a positive. A girl after my own heart, my granddaughter just wants feedback.

So, what you thank? Check Yes of No, and then offer some comments.
