Programme Synopsis Children are natural storytellers. The programme will guide students through the process on how to write, illustrate and produce their own picture storybook. The book will be professionally laid out as how printers would do it and the students will get the softcopy of the printable book. The school or the child can opt to have the book printed by us. By bringing the child through the whole process of creating a final book out of just ideas, we want the child to be proud of his / her work. Art style for illustration can vary. The best style for children will be the collage style of Eric Carle (“The Hungry Caterpillar” and others). Other art styles suitable for the art group of the students can be explored as well. Students will plan to produce a 16-page book, including cover and back page, acknowledge page and a page about the Author. They will go through the process of planning the story based on a theme selected with the school, illustrating each page and editing the story. Since 2019, we have helped many 100 children produced and published their stories, from as young as 3 years old to upper primary students. The theme, story plan and training approach will vary according to age group.
