Class begins!

After introductions, our 1st day of English 527/Creating Picture Books for Children began with a mini-book bang. We designed 8 page, accordian-fold books designed to live in up-cycled mint tins.



The challenge was to create a micro story to fill the mini book- a beginning, middle and end with several characters, mood, action and story arc.minibook_6

We used rulers, scissors, glue and collage papers.minibook_5minibook_2
