The big draw


Sharon Lane Holm's spring 2009 class proudly display their masterpieces at their publisher party. The children write and illustrate their own picture books, by following the same process a children's book illustrator/author would, from concept, thumbnails to illustrated "books". I am always so inspired by their work and effort. So many good story ideas! Fall class of 2009 has just started!

I would have loved to attend such a class when I was their age. We had better look out in a few years time, as they will be ahead of us with technology and full of new ideas!

june-whats really cool is to see the kids who have since gone onto jr high, involved in after school journelism classes. And having sisters and brothers as they are growing up, and repeat kids.Been doing this about 6 yrs now.

Love the gold-winner stickers. Great idea. Does this take place in one day, or several? Are you teaching a whole term?
