Check It Out! Week of February 9th


This week, we will get back to our focus on art in picture books.

In grades K-5, we will talk about drawing and painting, which is a very popular medium used by illustrators. So many of the books in our library have art created by pencils, ink, or paint, so it won’t be hard for the students to find one!

We will also watch a short video by Loren Long, author/illustrator of the “Otis” books. He talks about the character of Otis and students can see how he takes his illustrations from pencil art to finished painted pieces.
