"Dear Karen,We very much enjoyed your artwork in the book "I have an Olive Tree". We looked at your picture to give us ideas for our own yellow land, spotted water, and blue sky with yellow clouds. Some of us added a red boat and goats. We are a second grade classroom. I thought you might like to know how you influenced our art in a positive enjoyable way.Mrs. Robin White, Davis, California"
