Family Artifact Paragraph

My family artifact is a book I made when I was four years old for my dad’s birthday, which was on March 27, 2014. It is made out of tan construction paper, and I wrote it with different colored markers. When it was finished, me and my mom took the pages to STAPLES, where we laminated it and stapled it together. The book was called “The boy named Julius who rode 10,000 trains in one day”. Riding trains is something me and my dad used to do a lot, just for fun. Now, I will tell you how my dad got the book. Every year, on his birthday, we make a treasure hunt and he has to find his presents. The first thing he found was the book. He cried with joy when he got it. The book is very important to me and my family.
