Teddy Pear

poem and pictures by Gracie, age 8

A Teddy Pear is a special bear
kids sleep with when it's night.

Or you could eat it for your breakfast.
That would be alright.

The Ticklafuss

some free verse by Isaac, age 10

There are dogs, cats, and kangaroos
The things I like most are the Tigills
Like the Tooflugar and the Tromparoo
The one I fear is the Ticklafuss
With its wiggly, squiggly arms
And its whirly, squirrely fingers.
What, Mom?
Who's there?
The Ticklafuss!

Isaac made a bunch of great dragon pictures this past week... These are two of my favorites.

I love how he's playing with framing on the page - how the dragons weave in and out of the picture.
