Children's Literature

Essential Question

Everyone loves children books, but beyond a good idea what is the process of creating a true classic?

Project Description

We will spend some time reading some favorite classics and award winners to better understand what elements comprise a true classic. We will then put pen to paper and begin the process of drafting and illustrating a children’s story.

We will follow the advice of some prominent authors and illustrators to help us craft and produce your very own children’s picture book. Finally, we will spend some time discussing the process authors undertake in order to get published. This project can be done independently, but you could also pair with a friend one as the author and one as the illustrator.
