X is for... Children

For my 2017 challenge, I was not sure quite what I wanted to blog about. Numerous ideas were coming to mind but each seemed to require even more energy and strength. So I've decided to focus on an acronym for ART:
A - Artists (musicians, painters, photographers, writers, etc.)
R - Reading (books, poems, etc.)
T - Theater (movies, musicals, plays, etc.)

Today we're focusing on...

X and Children

A - Xul Solar
Jefa by Xul Solar.
R - Xander's Panda Party
I love children's books and the illustrations by Matt Phelan in this one are delightful.
T - Spot Marks the X
When I was a kid, the 1986 movie, Spot Marks the X, was an all-time favorite. I don't think it's available on Amazon or Netflix but someone has uploaded the movie to YouTube.


  1. Somehow I had never heard of that Disney movie. But I remember "Down and Out in Beverly Hills." Weird that the dog was the most notable star.

    X - Brother XII, Canada's Own Crazy Cultist!

  2. I like children's picture books too. Xander's Panda Party looks cute!

  3. Well done on finding just the right X's to fit your pretty difficult theme! :) Spot-on, shall we say? :P


  4. I like Xul Solar's style. Very cool.

  5. I have never seen Spot marks the X - will have to look for that. Thanks Joy!
