"Reading Time" sketch by Gloria Poole in Missouri; yr 2014 in acrylics.
Introduction page: this is a story written and illustrated by me Gloria Poole,RN,artist of Missouri and Georgia in year 2013 and 2014. I am reorganizing it so it flows sequentially and is easier to read. The above cartoon is to illustrate what this story is about and that is encouraging parents and care-givers to read to small children. The story and illustrations of The Lady bugs that give picnics are reorganized by me Gloria Poole as author and illustrator to simplify its on line readability. All of these pages were added one by one to begin with and are in the archives of this blog but I am putting the story in sequence on this post.
Page 1 :
and they sent a special invitation to mama kangaroo and wrote in fine and fancy calligraphy PLEASE bring baby too,
fearing mama kanga might leave the wee one home with dad. So, the mama kangaroo was thrilled! After all, she had been cooped up in that house
with that new baby for a while now, and having a reason to go somewhere was good news to her.
She was bounding along on those gigantic legs of hers,and lo and behold, she saw beside the path dancing flowers!
They were holding hands and forming a 'can-can' line and singing happily. Well, she was astonished.
But what was even more astonishing was she saw her own wee one give an A-OK signal to the flowers. Well, mama kangaroo just stopped in her tracks
to witness her own baby taking notice of the surroundings and responding to it. "This is something to write in my baby book for sure--
aw, shucks, why didn't I bring my cell phone with the camera?',she thought to herself. .
