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 . . .
Kirsti Call and Daughter, Sophia
If you follow this series, you will probably remember other episodes featuring the Call family. Kirsti has also collaborated with daughters, Naomi and Sydney. Every time I prepare a Call family post, I’m delighted. It’s evident that creativity is embraced and encouraged in this household.
From Kirsti: Sophia made an entire series of these trees (6 separate pieces), but we chose three of them for this collaboration.

And a special treat. The Call family is musically talented and today we get to hear a song from Sophia. She is singing with her older sister Sydney.
Many thanks to Sophia and Kirsti for sharing their talents with us today.
