Stories from the minds of kids.

A new year is under way. Tales are being invented, and I'm drawing the pictures while the stories are still fresh, right in front of the kids who invented them. I'll add drawings as we go along. Will I top last year's record of 300? Time will tell!

If you would like to use drawings like the ones below to inspire your students or children to write, check out my new collection of picture prompts! You'll get larger version of the art and worksheets for pre-writing exploration of the stories!
