Make your own headline news! Fifty pages of tear-out newspaper layouts correspond to twenty sticker pages of partially drawn images and headlines. Kids are invited to color and complete the stickers, layering them up so that volcanoes erupt, schools explode, teachers are sent to prison, and moms win Oscars. Column space alongside gives plenty of room for hilarious accompanying stories. Humorous and warm, this book is a great way of getting kids excited about creative writing.
Alice Bowsher's pen and ink drawings are exploding with fun. She is the author and illustrator of The Line (Cicada 2014) and Curious (Hato Press 2015).
With Read All About It, children can design their own newspapers. Templates and stickers of people, faces, buildings, random things (dinosaurs and explosions being some of them) are included to help finish off your stories of the day so you can call it a day and put your newspaper to bed. After all, you’ve got to get up early at the crack of dawn and make deliveries. —AveryandAugustine
