This is one of my favorite reader-submitted photos ever– meet Tholakele, a 5-year old from South Africa. On a trip to Paris, left the toy department at Le Bon Marché empty handed and instead picked out a notebook and pen and ink set for herself, which she tried out the minute she and her mother got to the café!
I love her look of concentration– and that’s a nice little Eiffel Tower she’s drawing in gorgeous purple ink!
Tholakele’s mom, Annicka, admits that a notebook obsession runs in the family– she writes and draws daily in notebooks herself.
A big thank you to Annicka for sharing the photos!
