Taking a walk in my neighborhood this season, one sees all kinds of silly yard decorations. In fact, we have a frog with a Santa hat in ours. This Santa in an airboat with a duck driver caught my eye. The propellor actually turns. Here’s another haiku. Number 24 for haiku-a-day in December.
In the early fall, flood waters claimed many homes here in South Louisiana. My third grade student Jacob’s was one of them. He wrote a story about the flood. I contacted Peter Reynolds about Jacob’s story, and he published it in his magazine for kid authors and illustrators, Hutch. Jacob’s sister, Emily (6th grade), drew the illustrations. An exciting collaboration! I celebrate Jacob and Emily’s first publication!
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to all!
