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 the collaborative brother-sister team . . .
Erik and Josie Weibel
You’re in for a treat as I welcome our young collaborators. Erik is 13 years old and Josie is 11 years old. Prepare to be wowed!
Erik said, “Josie’s art inspired my poem. She did that watercolor and it just made my imagination run! :)”
I totally get that! Josie’s watercolor is fabulous and inspiring. So is Erik’s poem.
Many thanks to Josie and Erik for being our guests today!
