Happy National Poetry Month!
Hello, Great Readers of our series! Just in case you haven’t visited before, let me tell you a little about A Great Nephew and A Great Aunt. My great nephew, Landon (a fifth-grader) and I (his 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. I have created a page on my website to view all the episodes of A Great Nephew and a Great Aunt. Click HERE to visit the page and enjoy past episodes.
Today it is my pleasure to welcome . . .
Kirsti and Naomi Call!
Kirsti and Naomi are a mother daughter-team. One day they hope that Naomi will illustrate one of her Mom’s books!
“Tree of Life” by Naomi
It looks like to me they’re well on their way to having a book together some day!
Not only is Naomi an artist, she is the lead singer in her band, Rock Solid. Enjoy this performance!
Many thanks to Kirsti and Naomi for sharing their collaboration with us today!
