A message from our blogmaster: Welcome to the EasternPennPoints July blog event where we’ll be celebrating summer vacation all month long. Each #Vacation blog post will feature art or poetry from our Eastern PA SCBWI members with the theme “vacation.” In addition, to keep our creative brains working during this sometimes unproductive month, we will include summer writing/illustrating prompts at the end of each post, brought to you by children’s book author Tony Fredericks (who never seems to run out of ideas). And now, it’s time to sit back, relax, and celebrate vacation!

- All the animals have a tribal meeting to decide who is in charge. Each animal provides a reason why he/she should be chief.
- The river that ran by the Weavers’ house could be friendly or angry. This summer it was especially angry.
- Davey knows a giant lives at the top of the beanstalk. He climbs the beanstalk, not to meet the giant, but rather to meet the giant’s pet.
