Researching about Lois Ehlert we learnt that she has a very creative book creation proess. She begins with a "dummy book"made from pencil drawings. Then assesses to determing the subject matter of the new book. Once she has a topic, she will do background research to learn more. Then she will begin her artwork, which involves cutting out each piece individually and then gluing them on the pages of her book.
For some craft we used her technique of colourful cut-paper-style illustrations to create wonderful pictures related to the book. K and L used various craft material to create their pictures.

K enjoys writing and she also wished to write the recipe for the pesto. So I wrote words for her and she chose what to include in the recipe.
