Spring Is Here

Our elementary school has an annual author's night. The kids work for weeks to write and illustrate their hard-bound books, then read them on little stages scattered throughout the school. Levi conquered the butterflies in his stomach to read his masterpiece, "Spring Is Here."

Here's the title page, which reads, "Levi. I am 5. I like playing on my playhouse." The illustration is his playhouse, complete with knotted black rope, ladder, and leafy tree.

  1. So sweet! (Or cool, if you want to tell him.) Marri's book was about dinosaurs and turned out really cute, but I have to say, one of my fave things about it was that in the acknowledgment page, she has it "To Sophie" and then she has a picture of a coat and a bubble saying "Here's your coat, Sophie!" The randomness of it all just tickles my fancy!
