Afterwards, the group will discuss their observations and explore how to evaluate the picture book as an art form with the goal of using this critical engagement with the picture book as a platform for interactive reading experiences.

Designing Books with Children

Friday, March 9, 2018

1:30 pm - 4:30 pm

(3 PDPs) In this hands-on workshop, we will explore the book form as a platform for storytelling with children. Together we will construct books that allow you to teach bookmaking techniques to your students while also giving the children agency over their own designs and story arcs. We'll experiment with a range of materials that are inexpensive and easy to find. Participants will walk away with examples of several different book forms to take back to their classroom, community center, or home.
