I actually felt weird about changing Poppy’s age in the book from 4 to 6 but as I thought about it. Poppy will not read the book until she is older so, it won’t matter much. It also opens the world up a bit in terms of how much a child could comprehend. The dialogue could be more developed as well. So, no big deal for the story.
I just need to remember that most people will be reading this entirely as a fictional piece and have no real clue who Poppy is or the source of the inspiration for the story. But as people find out about our vlog or this blog, maybe a richer picture will form for them; that’s my hope anyhow.
