Integrating Art

What Do Authors and Illustrators Do? (Two Books in One) - Eileen Christelow

This text is paired with the "What do Authors do?" and follows two artists as they illustrate different versions of "Jack and the Beanstalk." Another great first grade book to introduce the students to what an illustrator is and the hard work they put into the books. We all know that illustration is important at this milestone (first grade) because the children are using the illustrations to help them read the text. By furthering their understanding of the process and importance of the illustrations, they gain a deeper comprehension. After reading this book I would have my class "illustrate" a small book just to check and make sure they grasped the concept.
