The Gift: A Zebra Headband
"I'm making a zebra with pink lines on it!" -Violet
You have to participate. - Maxon
What kind of questions do we need to ask Marley?
Marley, what is your favorite kind of paper?
Tissue paper. - Marley
Maybe we rip it into pieces then put it on her shirt and it will be colorful. -Violet
That's nice, Violet. -Marley
How about? I think I have an idea, a great idea. I think we could umm put tissue paper on a piece of paper, on um white tissue paper, and then color it to whatever color Marley likes, and then it could be colored tissue paper. -Maxon
Okay. - Marley
This is my second kind of favorite paper (drawing, print paper). -Marley
We need to ask her favorite color. -Sylvie
What's your favorite color, Marley? -Maxon
My favorite color is violet. -Marley
That's my name! -Violet
What else can we ask?
The shape. What's your favorite shape, Marley? -Sylvie
My favorite shape is the square. -Marley
What's your favorite color? -Violet
My favorite is pink, pink and violet. -Marley
I haver a great idea! So we'll get tissue paper and one person will get Marley's favorite color and some people they can do what they want. They can um do different colors that Marley doesn't like or the same colors that Marley likes. -Maxon
What is your favorite animal?
My favorite animal is a zebra. -Marley
What's your favorite, your favorite headband? -Violet
This one. -Marley
Marley what's your favorite hairdo? -Sylvie

"And what's next about the purple? I could draw in the purple," said Violet. "So we could make a pink and purple zebra," Sylvie commented. Eventually, we arrived at the idea to make a zebra headband for Marley.
