Cathryn Falwell visited our school today. This amazing author and illustrator has published 28 books!
She uses collages to illustrate her books. Here she's showing us some of the materials she uses to create the pictures.
She showed us pictures of her tree house (Yes, it is hers!), her studio, and the pond she writes about!
She even had us interact with the books by holding up pictures when we heard our animals name, making sounds she hears around the pond, thinking about action words, and acting out being turtles in the sun!
We also learned how a publisher only uses 4 colors for all of the illustrations in all books!
Thank you for coming to visit us today!
