The Life of Tomie dePaola

Danielle is in Mrs. Maupai's second grade class at Birchwood School in Dover, New Jersey. She liked the "26 Fairmount Avenue" chapter book series so much that she created a poster: The Life of Tomie dePaola.

She illustrated the following highlights:
Tomie's parents build a new house.
Tomie gets a new baby sister.
He starts dance lessons.
Tomie gets his library card and learns to read.
Tomie dePaola gets his first diary.
Tomie's uncle joins the war.
Tomie's cousin is already in the war and dies.
