If I find some copyright free illustrations for Jack and Jill, could 
we place this in our Literature section on the web?

To summarize,

1. facial expression to start the first sign, to anchor the beginning 
of the sentence in the column?

2. connect the arrows together going up the hill?

3. I like Jack's crown...that is great!!

4. when Jack falls down...maybe the curves of the motion arrow should 
be flopped? Isn't the curve the opposite direction for the right hand 
falling compared with the left hand falling? It would make it feel 
more symmetrical...

5. and then punctuation...perhaps a pause or two? and the ending of 
the sentence?

Super job, Cherie!

Val ;-)
