Do you have a favorite book? Do you have a favorite scene from that book? Illustrators are artists who turn words into pictures that help us imagine a story as we read.
Close your eyes and think about a scene from a book you really loved. What did the author write that helped to paint a picture in your mind? What is the setting? What do the characters look like? What other details does the author describe? Can you see the colors, feel the textures, or hear the sounds in your scene? What is happening in your favorite scene?
Draw a picture that illustrates your scene. What will you include in your illustration? How will you make words into pictures?
