phonics illustrations

Yes, it's been a busy day (outerwear! design card deadline!), but I've had these illustrations in my visual journal for ages. They are from my phonics book in elementary school. I loved to think up all kinds of narratives for the bottom picture...who lived in which building, whether the man on the raft was the woman under the umbrella, who would join the girl swinging (or who left her to swing alone), why no one was on the bus....more deep thoughts throughout the week, I'm sure.
