Student Art

One class of young readers offered their versions of book covers for The Boy on the Porch.  Below are a few.

You probably already know how much I love student art, right?

I especially loved seeing the elements that students chose as emblematic of the story: the blue tree, the shoes, the guitar, jelly beans, cow and dog.  Perfect.



  1. That's a very interesting subject for kids!

  2. Those students were so inspired by your book. How lovely is that. Next week our little family book group (only 2 families, but the discussions are great) is going to discuss Granny Torrilli Makes Soup...

  3. This is one book of yours that I haven't read yet. Gotta get on it! Love the pictures. What a treat!
