Our Feet First Picture Book Entry

Room 9 has entered a competition run by Feet First to design a picture book for children.

It had to be based on active travel, be 16 pages long and we were allowed to choose the genre and style of our writing.

Room 9 worked very hard
developing the storyline using a storyboard,
choosing the language (rhyme and alliteration) for the story,
developing the background artwork in Kidpix
and posing for the photographs.

We are very proud of our picture book!!
Take a look and see what you think, we will let you know if we receive any good news :)

  5. Wow! Room 9 - you really do shine! I love your picture book and would like to share it with my class of Year 5/6 children in Dunedin! You will have to let us know how you created such fantastic illustrations! Is that kidpix in the background? The way that you have used alliteration in your story is very clever. Good luck and keep us posted - I think you are winners already! Mrs B (on behalf of Room 12)
