the art around us

When I was a kid, my favorite piece of art was the painting Cakes by Wayne Thiebaud—not because of the painting’s brushwork or composition, but simply because it was a picture of cakes. A print of this painting hung in a restaurant my family visited often. As my parents and I would wait for dinner, we would make a game based on the painting. What cake am I thinking of? What flavor is each cake? What is each cake for? And it’s that print that inspired me to learn more about art. In this month’s poem puzzle, “Picture Perfect” (pages 16–17), Leo is painting a portrait of his friend Julia. In the background are some famous pieces of art, including a cat-inspired Mona Lisa.

new things in spring

Tex, Indi, and their family were visiting Aunt Jen and her farm. “Welcome back,” said Aunt Jen. “You’re just in time to see the wildflowers wake up!” “Flowers don’t really sleep,” said Indi. “Do they?” “Not like we do,” said Aunt Jen. “But sometimes they rest underground through the cold winter months.

“What a beautiful sunny day,” Ginger Paws said, poking his nose outside. “The grass is green, and the apple tree is covered with pink buds. It’s the perfect day for a picnic.” He hurried inside to pack a picnic basket and invite his friends over. “Surprise!” Ginger Paws shouted when his friends arrived. “We’re going to have a spring picnic.” “I’ll carry the picnic basket,” Davy Gravy said. “I’ll carry the blanket,” Misty said. Ginger Paws opened the door. “Oh, no!” he moaned. “We can’t have the picnic today.” “Why not?” Itty-Bitty Kitty asked. “Winter came back,” Ginger Paws said. “The apple tree is covered with snow.” “That’s not snow,” Misty said. “The buds on the tree opened into white blossoms.” “Silly me!” Ginger Paws laughed. “Let’s have our first spring picnic under the snow-white apple tree.”…
