December 2001: Pen and Colored Pencils.
Caption: “Can I read over your shoulder?”
Explanation: From no book in particular, this scene could be from any morning when Nina brings the comics over. Here, Ivy and Nina look at the paper with Tab and Thursday.
IVY TRIVIA: Of the pictured group above, Nina has the highest reading ability, even though she is also the youngest. She can make sense out of just about anything she reads. Ivy reads slowly but decently, Thursday can read on about a third grade level, and Tab really can’t read at all, but she’s pretty convincing about faking it.
