Not only did we draw the illustrations, but we also created the books, retyped the stories, and chose how they would look. We were going to add voice to these stories too but decided instead to take screen shots and create little movies of us reading the stories. Those are not finished yet but should be soon.
If you own an iOS device, and have Book Creator and DropBox on your device you can check out what we've created. There are seven books in all, and they are all stored in this one dropbox folder. All you have to do is download the file and open it in Book Creator. Hopefully you can open and read them and check out all of our hard work. If you can't don't worry, once our movies are finished Ms. Lirenman will put them here on the blog so you'll be able to watch them instead.
We are excited to see where this collaborative project is heading. After spring break we will be going on a field trip to the high school to meet these children that we've been working with. In addition Ms. Oakland's drama class will be performing these stories to us. This is all very exciting for us (and we think for the big kids too). Stay tuned for more details.
