The students are making great progress on their picture books. We have now reached the state where most are planning how this book will look. This is a fun, but also fairly complex stage. Done well, this stage will ensure that the book is well-crafted and beautiful. 

To be sure everyone has time to focus on all the details, I've extended the deadline to March 16.

Assignment Goal: Using blank paper and colored pencil, create a rough draft of your book. The mockup should not include every word. Add just enough words to show what part of the story goes on which page. Add rough illustrations (not scribbles) showing where the illustrations will go on each page. Include a front and back cover, and example pages for all the front matter and any back matter.
