fresh starts

I had the perfect outfit for the first day of kindergarten: pink high-top sneakers and a denim skirt with the letters of the alphabet all over it. It was peak five-year-old fashion. The clothes were new, but at the same time, they made me feel comfortable, happy, and true to myself. Such feelings can mean so much as we embark on an unknown adventure. For the start of this school year, Tex and Indi and their family have a new illustrator. By giving the feature a different style, we are exploring novel ways to get to know these characters. We can discover new ways they interact. We can see new places they go and people they meet. A refreshed look for characters can invite a deeper friendship with them. I hope…

help is ok

Gran and Poppy were coming for a visit. Tex and Indi were making them welcome gifts. “There,” said Tex. “My friendship bracelets are all done.” “They look great,” said Indi. “I wish my book were done.” “I give up,” grumbled Indi. “What’s the matter?” asked her sister, Arizona. “I’m trying to make my drawings into a book for Gran and Poppy,” said Indi. “But every time I put the ribbon through the holes, it falls right back out again.” “Do you want me to do it?” asked Arizona. “I really want to do it myself,” said Indi. “I know how you feel,” said Arizona. “How about we do it together?” “OK,” said Indi. “Can you tie a bow if I hold the ribbon in place?” “It’s so thoughtful of you to give us welcome gifts,” said Gran. “I’ll wear my…

A letter can be mailed at the post office or put into a mailbox. Mail carriers remove the letters from the mailbox and take them to the post office.

fiction a family walk

By Sheri Delgado-Preston ⋆ Art by Melissa Iwai Tristan played with his toast. “I miss Mom. I wish she didn’t have to work today.” “Me too,” said Dad. “What do you think she’d want us to do?” “Something fun,” said Tristan. He thought for a moment. “I know—let’s go for a walk!” Dad and Tristan strolled down the sidewalk with their dog, Bella. “Here’s your paper,” Tristan said to their neighbor, Mr. Sanchez. “Thank you, Tristan,” said Mr. Sanchez. “Here are some tomatoes for you and your dad.” Mr. Sanchez gave Tristan a handful of small red tomatoes.
