Young Illustrators

As part of our Week of the Young Child festivities we have been celebrating children’s literacy.  Each year one of my favorite activities is to have my students illustrate a book that they know very well.  This year I choose Eric Carle’s “The Very Hungry Caterpillar.” My students seem to gravitate towards this book, and all of them have reported that they have a copy at home, so I knew it was one they were very familiar with.

Our class book turned out great.  Here is my class’ illustrated version of “The Very Hungry Caterpillar” (I did the cover page, the rest was done by my five year old students).
