The Other Way to Listen

I read this story to a fourth grade class at Khalsa Montessori School. The children told me of their favorite hiking trails and what they enjoyed most about the desert. The children drew pictures of their favorite places using the illustratoršs drawings as a guide.


The drawing shows the suggestion of a face and a bird in the mountains.


The drawing shows a desert scene.


The drawing shows an animal in the desert with rain falling in half the picture.


The drawing shows a log over a stream and steep rock.
