Reasons to be Cheerful Part 1

Reasons to be Cheerful

Reasons to be Cheerful

Just recently AnElephant wrote of a school visit he made:
https://anelephantcant.me/2013/05/17/up-in-the-morning-and-out-to-school/

He talked about what he does, and had a great time. He also read this poem, which was well received:
https://anelephantcant.me/2012/09/04/i-scream-ice-cream/

Following is his original invitation, with the subsequent responses from teacher and pupils. Six children, from a class of fewer than 30, took the time to write.

And AnElephant is often asked why he does not charge a fee for these visits!
Can you guess why?

About AnElephantCant

An artist/writer/poet combination whose blogs reflect an approach to life that celebrates nature and takes a tongue-in-cheek view of most issues. So you get rhymes and doodles, photographs and comment. Irreverent and irrelevant. Occasionally funny, sometimes serious, mostly pointless. https://anelephantcant.me/
