Walnut Grove Elementary Art 2008

In 2008 Walnut Grove Elementary School in Franklin, Tennessee held their annual Rock-N-Roll Read-A-Thon on February 29th. Leap Day! The 650+ students were dressed for a sock hop in 1950’s costumes, and I was deeply impressed with the artwork on display by students. In fact, much of the artwork from Walnut Grove has found its way into banners for my websites and catalogs. 2010 Author Visit Catalog

Students’ depictions of Tiny and Mother Turtle were especially heart-warming. I do not see Mother Turtle art very often.
