In the first chapter, we visit Benito as a child, living with his uncle and sister and tending his uncle's sheep. Above is J's story drawing, of Benito tending the sheep. Below is Zoo Boy's drawing of Benito eating his meager supper.
Our story summaries, J's full summary is above, Zoo Boy's shorter, modified summary is below. I messed up and spelled Josefa's (Benito's sister) name with a "ph" by mistake initially, and didn't catch it until I was reviewing their work, so I had them go back and fix it on their pages also.
Someone asked me why I'm not posting my drawings anymore. It's because I'm not drawing anymore -- the boys have transitioned to doing their own work without me needing to work side-by-side with them. (We started that way before the holidays, by the way, so that's not the cause of Zoo Boy's recent reluctance, although I did consider that I might need to sit back down with them to help him along -- we seem to be beyond that issue for the moment, so I'm leaving it alone for now.)
