In language arts class, the sixth grade had to write a story and make a book about their hero. This is the first year ever that the books we made that they were going into the Frank Gallery on Franklin street. Our teachers told us it could be about anyone! As long as the person you choose inspires you, they are your hero! I chose my mom because she is always there for me through the good and bad!
The whole process of making the book took about a month. We had to write, edit, and revise our stories half of the time, the other half we had to make the paper, fold, and glue the paper to make our books. It was a lot of work, but it was definitely worth it in the end!
The first day I walked into the art room not knowing any of my scenes or what I would make my book look like. I think the best part of the whole process was when my mom saw it for the first time, it took a lot of time and effort, but in the end it was worth it! I think the hardest part was peer editing because everyone’s story was so different and special! This is a really fun experience, and I can’t wait to take my book home from the gallery!
