An ode to green

Dear Cole,

I like green and I have green eyes, but I think red is my favorite colour (not for eyes, though).

I am fascinated that you drew yourself with a green shirt and hair, but not the tree or the grass behind you! You’ve left that to our imagination. Writers do that, too. They provide a few details, but leave plenty to the readers’ imagination. That way, readers can add their own details, and it makes the story more memorable.

By the way, I said, “Aww!” outloud when I zoomed in on your drawing and discovered that you drew three little chicks reaching out their beaks for their next meal. Perhaps it will be a green catepillars for lunch?

Happy reading,
