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 sixth-grader) and I (his great aunt) collaborate. I write a poem which he illustrates. We started this collaboration in the fall of 2014 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 share a creative collaboration from . . .

Yum! A box filled with ice cream to share sounds wonderful, Sandy. And Mary drew the drips just right.

Many thanks to Sandy and Mary for sharing their collaboration with us today.

  1. I would eat some in a box.
    I would eat some wearing socks.
    I would eat some in a chair.
    I would eat some with a bear.
    I would eat sweet ice cream now.
    I would thank that ice cream cow!

    Thanks for sharing the ice cream today! What a treat!

  2. What wonderful memories you are creating for all the creative collaborators who have played along. I would have loved to write poems with my grandmother.

    Thanks for sharing.
