Devon schools: children’s book writing and illustration project
We are delighted to be designing a project with professional children’s book writers and illustrators Heidi and Daniel Howarth from Devon. They have over 20 beautiful books published which you can admire and buy in the shops and online with the usual retailers! (do check them out).
We’ll be offering a great creative and skills-learning opportunity for schools and working together to write and illustrate a brand new book.
To come up with a story for our book, we’ll be exploring themes including what is anxiety? and coming up with an engaging story and original illustrations. We want to create a book together which will help children and parents/carers to talk more about important issues like mental health and well-being.
Heidi and Daniel have loads of experience in writing engaging and nurturing books which can bring children and parents/carers together as they read and enjoy their beautiful stories and illustrations. Their published books include The Otter Who Loved to Hold Hands which explores how Otto the Otter who loves to hold hands all the time, learns to face his fears and venture out more on his own.
We’ll be working with a group of young people to write and illustrate a book for younger children.
We’re looking for a secondary school or college as well as primary schools to get involved
