Jeremiah Begeansma drew a picture of a blue gun with a box around it to show that was “an important gun” and in a museum.
The 7-year-old then explained that a super hero would swoop in before a “bad guy” could steal it and “do bad things.”
Jeremiah’s pictorial tale — which he showed using bright colors and two pieces of paper — was his contribution to a communal comic strip project as part of the summer reading kick-off party on Sunday at Nova Southeastern University’s Alvin Sherman Library, Research, and Information Technology Center in Davie.
“Reading opens up their imaginations,” said Jeremiah’s mom, Victoire Begeansma, as she watched her children create their comic strip. “It’s very important that you make reading and learning fun.”
