Planets in Our Solar System...

I mentioned last week that Schecky's class was working on a unit of study involving the Solar System and the planets.

One of the assignments was to "Write a Book About the Solar System."

Schecky decided to write a board book - "for little kids" - to introduce them to the planets.

I'm smitten...







Just sit back and enjoy the show. Or you can head over to Flickr and read his book there.

Awestruck. What great expression he put in those planet's faces, with just a few lines!

Your use of the slide show to show the book is inspired.

That's excellent. One day, he'll truly appreciate the comedy in his line about the tilted planet.

When the brilliant Schecky gets his book contract, we can say we saw it here first. Those faces are priceless!

I love how Jupiter looks like it just ate the best bean burrito ever and is enjoying the after effects...
Your kid is a genius. It's official. And I already loved him for the hamster pictures!
