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 June, Landon and I have a new episode and . . .guess what??? We switched places!! No! I did NOT do the art! Are you crazy?? Have you seen my stick man? So, no, that would NOT be a good idea. Here’s the switch: Instead of one of my poem’s providing the inspiration for a Landon illustration, one of his drawings provided the inspiration for a Penny poem. As soon as his mom posted his SUPER drawing on Facebook, I was SUPER inspired to zoom off and write a poem.
A SUPER fun fact: This drawing includes every member of Landon’s SUPER family, the Staples.
So here we go.
Episode 14: Super Staples
See why I was SUPER inspired???
By the way, I mentioned in the last episode that Landon has a recurring object in most of his illustrations? The object isn’t in Episodes #1 or #8, but it is in all the others. Do you see it today?
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.
We hope you have a SUPER day and we look forward to having you for future episodes!
