Part of sand bagging scene

This is part of just one page where it shows the kids acting on their plan to protect Gerry and Joe’s basement. [For readers of this blog, I have set aside a page just for the characters to show who is who. You can find it here. It is still incomplete as of today, but should be updated soon for future reading.]

The scene allows the reader to backpedal and figure out where the kids got the sandbags from, shows activity and just plain shows action. I keep telling myself I want to show action and action poses in the book where I can, and to minimize passive stances just to make it attractive to child readers. This image will be cropped to a smaller thumbnail on the actual book, and will be part of 3 or so other images.
