About the series: My great nephew, Landon (an eighth-grader) and I (the 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. You can click the links below to browse through past episodes. Guest episodes are listed first. Scroll down to find episodes featuring Landon and me.
Thanks for visiting 🙂
