this project was soooo fun and very special because our moody spring weather actually cooperated with us! we've been drenched in rain, snow, hail, sleet, and wind this spring with a few warm days here and there to tease us. we really needed sun for this one, and we got it (it clouded over later, making us feel even luckier)! we read i have a friend (bummer, amazon's listing has no image...i'll have to get a picture asap) by keiko narahashi. a beautifully illustrated, dreamy book about a boy whose shadow follows him through the day.
