It’s an exciting day for A Great Nephew & A Great Aunt. We have our first guest collaborators
A Grandmother & A Grandson!
Yes, Vivian Kirkfield and her grandson, Jeremy, have a sweet treat for us today.
Just in case you haven’t visited our series before, let me tell you a little about A Great Nephew & A Great Aunt. My great nephew, Landon (a fifth-grader) and I (the great aunt) collaborate. I write a poem which he illustrates. We started this collaboration last fall and have had so much fun with it that we decided to invite others along. Landon and I will continue to have a new episode on the second Friday of each month. The other Fridays are filling up quickly with guests.
If you would like to visit past episodes, I have all the links at the bottom of this post.
Now presenting Vivian and Jeremy with . . .
The Best Dessert
Here is the artist hard at work.
It looks like our author and illustrator collaborate in other ways, too 🙂
Thank you for being our guests, Vivian and Jeremy. And thanks to our readers for following this series. You can learn more about Vivian below. See you next time!
Meet Vivian: How do you find your bliss? By following your passion! Former kindergarten teacher, Vivian Kirkfield, is doing just that! When she isn’t scribbling stories, Vivian is hiking and fly-fishing with her hubby, reading, crafting and cooking with kids and sharing self-esteem and literacy tips with parents and teachers. Although she is not a fan of heights and was always a rather timid child, Vivian is constantly taking leaps of faith. She self-published Show Me How! Build Your Child’s Self-Esteem Through Reading, Crafting and Cooking, went skydiving with her son, flew half-way around the globe to speak at the 2013AFCC/SCBWI conference in Singapore and is amassing a respectable pile of submission-ready picture book manuscripts. To learn more about her mission to help every child become a lover of books and reading, you can follow her on Twitter, connect with her on Facebook, like her Show Me How page on Facebook, visit her blog at Picture Books Help Kids Soar or contact her by email.
Tara Smith has the Poetry Friday Roundup today at A Teaching Life. Be sure to head on over to enjoy more poetry.
