Carole at Beyond Literacy Link is hosting the Poetry Friday Roundup today. If you’d like to know more about Poetry Friday, click HERE for an explanation by Renee LaTulippe.
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 seventh-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 one 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’s my pleasure to share a creative collaboration from . . .
Linda Mitchell, Her Niece Aleah (14 yrs. old), Her Niece Cora (12 yrs. old), and Her Nephew Ian (11 yrs. old)
This delightful bit from Linda made me laugh: “Well. I’m a terrible rule breaker. I sent out a “call for submissions” and got not one not two but THREE pieces of art from my family. This is wonderful. I live in Virginia. My nephew lives in NH and my nieces live in WA. We are so far apart that this kind of collaboration over the holidays was just great for us!”
She went on to say that I could choose a pairing and she would feature the other two on her blog. I said, “No way! Let’s have all three!” And so we have a triple treat today 🙂

Many thanks to Linda, Aleah, Cora, and Ian for sharing their talents with us today.
