Design a Mini Book
Now it’s your turn to be an author and illustrator!
Ask a parent, family member or caregiver what job they do.
Research a job you might like to do in the future.
What does the job involve? What is a typical day at work? What type of clothes do they wear? Do they work with other people or alone? Do they use any equipment, tools or special materials? What’s the most fun part of the job?
Write down the answers to all the questions you asked and the research carried out, in the form of a story. You might want to even try to make it rhyme.
Design a book cover similar to the ones created by our artist Marissa Peguinho. Don’t forget to add a book title and who the book is by (you)!
