Upon closer inspection

This was one of several thank-you cards I received from students at a school in Maryland last week.

It contains one of my favorite elements that I sometimes see in such cards: a depiction of the author himself!

Really, just look at this:

I mean, seriously:

One of these is by photographer Sam Bond, but I’m not saying which one

That’s certainly how I feel when I look out on an audience that’s excited about reading and writing and drawing and creating their own stories, but I never realized I was so obvious about it.

  1. What a fabulous story! Aren’t kids wonderful. You never know what they are thinking. I love the heart shaped eye. Truly fits your personality and love of “spreading the word” about reading and literature. I would say that child really enjoyed your visit and got a lot out of it. BRAVO for you!
