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. Since today is the second Friday of April, Landon and I have a new episode!

Now . . .

A Cow, A Moon, and A Suspicion

I love Landon’s flipbook movie. I’m so glad he was on site to capture the “switch.” I hope Ol’ Bess is lovin’ it up there 😉

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 our guests episodes as well as our past episodes.

Thanks so much for visiting today. We look forward to having you for future episodes!

  1. Thanks GREAT readers! I appreciate all of you coming by and learning the truth about Ol’ Bess! I can tell you all loved the flipbook! You can never tell what Landon will come up with. He always amazes me with his creativity and talent!

  2. Rats I can’t see the flipbook video (my computer has flashplayer issues), but I love your poem–a great way for older kids to revisit the classic nursery rhymes–if they ever learned them! I did receive your invitation to participate, and I’m working on wearing down my kids. Would it count to write about something they’ve produced? There’s plenty of that about, but they’re resisting illustrating on demand. Thanks, Penny and Landon!
