The Armadillidium Family

This is a slightly humorous take on Covid family life. The Armadillidiums are also known as roly polies and we have a lot of them crawling around our yard in Montara. My daughter is constantly finding them. She carefully picks them up and makes little homes for them in old jars and cups. My mother, inspired by my daughter’s creations, drew this cartoon featuring these fascinating creatures.

Enjoy. Let us know what you think in the comments below.

  1. I really enjoyed reading about your Armadillidium Family. Although the story sounds familiar I enjoyed your illustrations and presentation. Perhaps the children can make a little story like this based on their family and some other insects.


  2. Love the story (words and illustrations) about The Armadillidium Family. The oatmeal for breakfast sounded really familiar, I wonder why??? It is also called porridge.
