Book Illustrations and Their Illustrators as Artists-K-3
Help learners construct relationships between written narratives and book illustrations, and between the narratives in formal visual art and the subject of the visual art. Look at Caldecott winning books and focus on the pictures drawn. If you have Easy Color Paint, young artists can create their own illustrations; otherwise, have pupils draw their own sketches on paper. Groups can be used to encourage readers to have book discussions.
