First I asked you to Give This Book a Title, and now I’m asking you to… Give This Book a Cover!
That’s right — this is the cover of my second activity book, Give This Book a Cover, which comes out on May 4th (just about three months away!). This book contains the same sorts of activities as you can find in Give This Book a Title, as well as on the Activities page of this website. However, with this batch of brand-new activities, I tried to give kids who wanted it an opportunity to push themselves a little further. In Give This Book a Cover, young creators will find the same silliness and fun — and, of course, instruction and inspiration! — but many of the activities will prompt them, if they choose, to engage in some deeper self-reflection and -exploration. All of this is intended to help kids learn how to mine their own selves and experiences for the sort of raw material needed to create stories of their own, whether they choose to write them, draw them, or both!
I get an incredible amount of joy — and inspiration! — from seeing what kids do with the activities from Give This Book a Title, as well as those I share for free on the Activities page of this site. I am thrilled to see what they do with this new collection of activities in Give This Book a Cover.
Here’s a look at the full cover — back, spine, and front:
As I mentioned above, Give This Book a Cover comes out on May 4th. However, it’s now available for preorder wherever books are sold!
