I thought that the article “Five” was lovely, creative, and heartfelt. I have never read an article like this before. Distancing herself from the story in the beginning gives it more sentimentality at the end of the article when we learn that the author was in the memory. Adding an additional section at the end,telling of the time passed was a great idea because it makes the reader realize that the story was a cherished memory to the author, only alive in the hearts of the children, and in a photograph. Additionally, the sense of imagery in this article is fantastic. The colors and physical descriptions used were explained very well and overall superb!
