Today I am very excited to introduce a new bi-weekly series on my blog. As you might have guessed from the title, this series will feature a GREAT nephew and a GREAT aunt. I’m the GREAT aunt. And my GREAT nephew, Landon, is . . . you guessed it . . . the GREAT nephew! 🙂
What’s this series all about? And what’s so GREAT about the nephew and the aunt? Well, this series is about illustration! This series is about poetry! And the GREATness? Well, Landon’s mom is my niece so that makes him my GREAT nephew. And since he is a GREAT nephew, that makes me a GREAT aunt! Right? Oh! You had the family tree thing figured out, did you? Well, the other GREAT thing is that we have teamed up to bring readers a-picture-with-a-poem sort of thing. I am going to feature some of my poems that Landon has illustrated. See how GREAT that is??? You know what else? Landon is a fifth grader. Ten years old, mind you. No kidding! And majorly talented! I have a feeling that every time you visit our series and see his illustrations that you’re going to say, “Wow! That’s GREAT!” That’s what I said when Landon said he wanted to do this.
So, without further adieu, here is:
Episode 1-Adventuresome Moose
I hope that you enjoyed Episode 1 and will return every other Friday for future episodes. I would love for you to follow my blog so that you don’t miss anything. You can follow in a reader or by email. Options for following are on the right hand side.
Landon and I both love comments. 🙂 Remember, though, that Landon is a fifth grader and takes his responsibilities as a student very seriously and most likely won’t be able to respond to each comment.
Just so you know, all drawings are Landon’s vision. I only send him the poems and he takes it from there without any guidance from me or his parents 🙂
